First felt and stitch



Made using wet felting, needle felting, more wet felting, rolling and then hand stitching.  Not entirely happy as I think it is too fussy in places.  However the appetite is whetted now and I want to make another picture in fiber.

    1. Not as long as you would think. The rolling is a bit arduous, but otherwise about 10 hours I think.

  3. It's absolutely wonderful Charlotte! I've tried a little of this, but on a much smaller scale. I love the soft almost watercolor quality to this piece.

    1. Thank you Dulcy, that means a lot from you. I would love to see what you have tried, your eye for colour is so good.
      This one is 8 by 8 inches. Fancy going bigger next time.
