Made this felted piece just a few weeks ago using cotton background to anchor merino fleece,silk, & yarns. Now framed and hanging around, looking for a special home to go to.
Getting ready for a Dungog by Design exhibition later this year, I played around with this piece of wood. Silk and beads embellishments created this, hopefully it will put smiles on cat loving faces!
created by the process of wet felting, and further embellished with silk and stitch, this hand made brooch is now owned by a woman here, who adores nature & the local rolling hills landscape..
Delving more & more into the tactile experience of creating felted pieces I travelled to Bendigo. To see a Bendigo’s wool & sheep show, which is a major annual event. It was all huge with sheep & wool judging, dog handling of sheep being displayed, and a wonderful retail area for anything wool.
My purchase of an Ashford blending board is out of its box onto my work table. Thanks to Ashford NZ website their instructions are helping with technique. This is just a beginning.
Merino fleece, yarns, fabric snippets were wet felted. Hand stitching was then added to define the imagery, and complete this pint-sized wall hanging. Yet to be framed ready for hanging. I welcome your comments about what you see in my piece.
