Navy Blue Merino and Soy Bean Top

A while ago I made a few pieces of felt using soybean top and navy blue Merino. This is the layout stage for a felt vessel:

I love the soft, golden sheen of soy bean top

I softly felted the piece, then when it was holding together, I shaped it over a glass jar. It turned out roughly how I’d expected though I’m thinking that it might make an interesting purse with a few adjustments and some sewing.

This is a close up of the texture, it reminds me of something woven or knitted felted into the wool.

I also made a large flat piece of felt using the same coloured blue and lots of soy tops. It’s such a nice colour combination, I just have to decide what I want to make from it now, then dare myself to cut it :)

    That’s a beautiful vessel and the soybean looks like extensive embroidery creating a field of grasses (but no hours of needle pushing – brilliant!)

    I love the soy fiber on the deep blue – gorgeous!

  3. The soy looks really nice on the blue wool . It would make a cool purse. You could use your flat piece to make matching accessories like a wallet and cell phone holder. Nn the other hand it does make a nice vessel.

      Thanks, Ann :)
      I did think of a wallet, and I don’t have a cell phone, but I do need a new glasses case, so maybe I’ll do that.

    Yes I love that deep blue with the lovely soy fibers, it really has felted in well. I can see the hand bag in the vessel.
