Wet felting with silk caps and hankies
I also worked on three different pieces with black merino and silk caps . I had been wanting to do this since last spring when I went on wet felting break and with fall in the air, seemed like a good time to try it . I will defiantly be making more of these as I love the black roving coming through the random colors of silk hankies . All three are felted to different hardness, the softest will make a nice fluffy scarf and the other two will be sewn into small bags .
I also did 2 needle felt animals.....one is a small dog sitting in a new position for me ,leaning on a paw.
My second feltie is in honor of the Felt United day which specified colors in red, blue and purple but allows for 3% "other" (which is the pink I used for the nose) . The blue is actually more teal, at least it seems to me that the purple brings out the green tones, I hope it's exceptable .
So that was my week and my thoughts are with those on the east coast, hoping they are all safe from Irene ....Good night Irene !
