Making a sunflower brooch with felt


First time I saw felted "yarn" (fanttinauha in Finnish), I thought it would be super fun to try and use it for some small crafts-project. I had bought a meter each of red, light green, yellow and brown while shopping with Mom, and I had this "vision" of a rose and a sunflower brooch.

Working free-hand with only a long needle and some yellow thread, I pieced together this sunflower brooch. Materials used were ~1 m yellow and 15 cm brown of the felted yarn. The metal-part of the brooch (the needle) I superglued into place. The brooch is about the size of my palm, and it weights hardly nothing, which is great.


...and back.
