Feeling Felty Again and Again!

Made a little flat felt picture using three layers of Merino wool fibre...sooooooooooo fine and soft!

Feeling Felty Yet Again!

I've been experimenting with incorporating pre-felt beads in wet-felting. I created a neckband using this technique - the finished result reminded me of a length of seaweed!

Stitch and Slash

Tried a new technique today - 'Stitch and Slash'. I'm following a tutorial by Carol Ann Waugh on Craftsy.com It's great...a little bit like reverse applique, except you keep the edges raw. I used three layers in my design. I will definitely keep experimenting with this...

Water Soluble Frenzy

Gripped this weekend by a frenzy of designs inspired by water;...the ocean...blues & greens...and water soluble stabiliser.

 I made a bowl by sandwiching fleece and threads between two layers of water soluble fabric, free motion stitching to cover the fabric, running the design under a hot water tap to dissolve the plastic and then stretching over a bowl and left to dry.

The design reminds me of something that you would pick up off the ocean floor. I love the translucency of the finished bowl.


Also tried another experiment by using water soluble stabiliser to make an edging on a piece of cloth.
