More Well Being Pieces

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 🙂

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

    1. 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!

    1. Thanks, Marilyn 🙂
      I’ll pass your nice comments onto Cath, with the others 🙂

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
