52 Weeks of Felt Paintings - Week 7

I did it! I did it! I finally tried my hand at wet felting--I can't believe I've waited this long.  I definitely still have some learning to do and techniques to develop, but I'm so excited to do so!

The painting is my very first piece.  I added the center of the flowers and some crow detail with needle felting, but everything else is wet felted.

 It's incredibly thin, which is a fun change. Oh, I can't wait to try out some more wet felting!


  1. Cool! What's the difference in the process?

    1. When I needle felt, I'm using the barbed needles to make the wool fibers felt together by poking and tangling. When wet felting, you get the fibers all wet and soapy, and then agitate them by rubbing or rolling to felt them together. ;)

  2. Looks great! I love learning new things, I just started quilting, so I totally understand how you feel haha :)
