Feeling my way with Felt

My adventure into felt-land!

Being introduced to making a felted pod, stirred up all of my creative juices.

Came about when our local group, the Daughters on Dowling,  enjoyed a 1-day workshop led by one of our very clever members.  By layering wool rovings, splashing sudsy water, and using energy to do lots of rolling,  this is the result of the day, and time spent at home following through with more.

Aren’t they beautiful?

No.1 - Made at our workshop under expert tuition.  This is the best!

No.3 - made at home too, had trouble bonding the silk embellishments.  Stitching and application of beads is the next stage to finish this organic one.

No.2 - made at home.  Marino wool rovings gave ultra-softness to this pod.  Hand stitched for texture.
