Poppies in Felt

7th June 2014

A very grey, rainy day today, so after the 'big shop' I continued with my poppy picture....

....embellished variegated Merino Fleece on a backing of black felt...


...made felt from two shades of fleece and cut into poppy leaf shapes...


....ready for embellishing...


....oh dear, the leaves seem to disappear!!


Decided to outline with hand stitching...


...more defined leaves...


...next I made felt for the poppies...


.....so quick with the embellisher...


....used a single needle to attach felt centres then free machined details.


I so enjoyed making this 'picture' using my embellisher and free machining!

Not quite sure what to do with it!!!!!
