I have a huge stash of the above. I used it when decorating the baskets as props for my pet photography.
How can I "attach" these little flowers to the wet Nuno felting without sewing it on?
I have Googled a lot and the only link I could find is in Russian (luckily with pics) but she rolled it out of silk strips, padded it with roving and then it seems she simply placed it on top of the existing roving layer. Will that really stay put?
I've seen this MC and made an experiment once (sorry I have no pictures). If you follow her instructions (pictures are self explanatory) and if you put your flowers on a layer of wool roving it should work and the flowers will stay put. Just make sure you roll long enough. If you have lots of different silk at home, try to make samples of each and you will see which type of silk gives best results.
Ruth ... that is drop-dead gorgeous! WOW! I echo all the comments left on that webpage ... beautiful work, well-thought out and executed!
I will try my embellishments on a sample piece and see how tough it felts in - will really give it a good tug of war <LOL> If all fails, there is always my hot glue gun <LOL> Just kidding :-) But I could (grudgingly) give it a couple of hand-sewn stitches to keep it intact and secured.
Oh I hate sewing! I think it stems from my school days when we were so poor and I had to sew my school uniforms and all my clothes myself :-(
I have done it. I did put some roving inside too, not a lot. It was a different silk flower tutorial. it was a video and she made a beret with them on. I will see if I can find it and take a picture. I saw it the other day.
Here is the flower. There is a silk base, I putt a little wool down, not much. I folded my strip of silk in half lengthwise and put a little wool sticking in and out of the open side. Then I rolled it up. you can see a little the wool in between in the second picture. it iw well attached . I don't think it would fall off a scarf.
