I have always been enamored with the work of Gail Crosman Moore. Her felt flowers have been an amazing source of inspiration for me. Last year I was lucky to have the opportunity to take on of her classes at The San Gabriel Bead Company. Craftzine featured an interview with her a while back.
I was browsing through the felt flickr pool today I came across another artist, Sandra Jasmin Fuchshofen who creates amazing felt flower lariats too. Her website, in German, features many more of her amazing creations.
