More Well Being Pieces

We got the boxes of embellishments and fabric strips out at the Well Being centre yesterday:

Cath started with some handspun yarn, dyed BFL and undyed wool locks (it’s upside down because I took it from my side of the table!):

Then she added some fabric strips, I think they were all silk:

Action shot:

This is it finished, but still wet:

I made some new wool tubes on the kebab sticks for my piece. The photos didn’t turn out as good this week, and I was a bit distracted as we had a couple of people in to learn about the group. I wrapped the wool around first then wrapped different fibres around:

It was felted at this stage:

I don’t know if you can actually tell from this photo, but I fulled it a bit more to shrink/thicken it:

This is the piece dried. It was getting late when I took the photos, so unfortunately not many came out. I used ‘budget filling’ on the 4th tube along on the bottom, I liked how different that one looked to the others:

This is the only close up which wasn’t blurred:

I also didn’t get photos of my piece from last week, sorry. Cath did, but my phone wouldn’t download the pics! Hopefully I’ll have them next week 🙂

    Both pieces turned out nicely. I really like the contrast of the dark green background and the colorful wool tubes. What is budget filling?

      Thanks, Ruth 🙂
      I’m guessing Budget filling is for toys or models, or maybe upholstery that doesn’t need soft/nicer filling.

  2. Caths’ piece looks interesting. I like the way she laid it out from the corner. I really need to try some of those tubes in my felt.

  3. Yes, we like the corner start to Cath’s pretty piece of felt too, and we think that the brightly coloured kebabs look great on the dark green background!

      Thanks Lyn and Annie 🙂
      I’ll be honest and say I chose the colours because they show up on camera better than other colours! They do work well together though!

  4. Very nice pieces. I love the first one before Felting. The embellishments look like they are floating off the ground. Love the colorful kebobs.
