Felt vessels


These vessels are made from a flat piece of felt which has been cut into a circle and then gathered with running stitches. They were a present for my sister, she has used a glass inside to hold the flowers. They were photographed on her balcony. My sister always has lots of flowers inside and outside. This is another Latvijan tradition - to have fresh cut flowers in the home and to always give flowers when you visit friends.

Oh double wow. These are beautiful. Now inspired to do more 3-D felting. Thanks for the link to Kneek she got me going again!

These vessels are lovely and what a great idea to set a glass vase inside for flowers. Ah, it sets my mind to thinking!
