Felting, More Experiments with Indigo, Bookmarks....

17th November 2018

I have had a busy and very enjoyable week and also managed some crafting....

...found 3 pieces of hand painted silk in my stash which I did a few years ago and have never used so clamped one piece, using plastic discs from chair floor protectors, with my new heavy duty clamps....


.....twisted and secured....


...wrapped around a tube...


....the results!


Another silk scarf twisted and secured...


...result.


Wrapping and clamping small cotton squares....


....results.


I have noticed the indigo vat is producing a much paler colour after  a week but still interesting!

More bookmarks, this time using my own dyed fabrics, back and front are different...


...made a mat using fleece, silk and my embellisher, the edges were a bit 'flimsy' so folded over small amounts of fleece all round the edge and embellished which produced a slightly wavy edge, a total surprise but I rather like it!!!


My wonderful Anthropologie pot, a charity shop find, sitting on the mat, just need a plant now!!!


Last but not least my Certificate, shame I tripped over my poles on my last walk in Richmond Park!!!!
