Orange, Orange, and More Orange
After a few more attempts, I managed to get a photograph of the orange piece I’d planned to blog about last time:
I made the piece to sew into a purse/wallet for my friend, but I was concerned some of the fabric wasn’t attached as well as I’d like for something which would get lots of handling, so I made another piece:
I even managed to get a closer pic of this one too:
And this is some of the synthetic embellishments I used:
Inbetween the two large pieces, I made a medium sized piece with the same colour theme, I used less fabric on this piece and more embellishent fibres, especially silk throwster’s waste and silk hankies:
Of course, today is the first bright, sunny day for ages, and I could probably get much better photos now!

Love the bright colours and perhaps a tad of Fauvism there? 😉
Thanks, Judith 🙂
I did wonder if I could get away with claiming this as a Fauvism challenge entry, extreme abstract maybe!
Judith’s right about the Fauvisim. The colours are great though – a striking mix – very warm. Please post a photo of the finished article.
I do sympathise with the photo thing as I’ve spent many frustrating hours getting true colours to show through my camera. Wouldn’t it be good to be able to buy a camera that could capture exactly what you see?
Thanks, Lyn 🙂
The challenge is on to find a zip, apparently ‘orange is a really strange colour’ according to the shop assistant in the fabric shop. I do have quite a few cameras which would capture more accurately, it’d involve a couple of trips to Max Spielman though!
What a wonderful group of felt pieces. Great colors. Looking forward to seeing the finished pieces. Those synthetic embellishments look really cool.
Thanks, Ruth 🙂
Yeah, I love those synthetic embellishments, they’re pulled apart from some weird loopy yarn I got years ago.
Nice colours and textures. They should make great pieces.
Thanks, Ann 🙂
Great a colors and textures!
