Felting using an Embellisher...

28th August 2016

I have had a very relaxing and creative day....


.....decided to make a felt cover for an old but useful vase...


....I have a few felted pieces in my stash....


....muted the colours of these samples using a lovely mohair yarn...


....these were used for leaf shapes....

....my base was pre felt...


...added these from my stash using my embellisher....






....rather like the shape...



...added leaf shapes and curly wool...



....think I need to free machine before completion, hope I get my machine back next week!

>>>>>>>>>

Used this lovely selection of fabrics to make a natural fabric square for my experiment sketchbook...


....love frayed edges, silk/cotton scrim, muslin....

.....embellished as I didn't have a sewing machine...


....hand stitched, so relaxing...



....think I might try this using a variety of machine stitches.....

.....I have really enjoyed using texture/stitch in these projects.
