Thank you for this lovely giveaway! I would be happy with any of the bundles as I have been doing a lot of wet felting lately. I see a scarf in there somewhere! Or a hat! or handwarmers! 🙂

Lovely giveaway! I’d love to get prize 3, but any would be great – I’d use it to play with 2D needle felting, something I’ve been toying with but haven’t properly started yet 🙂

Best of lucks to everyone!

I will contact you for a snail mail address by email. Lyn of Rosiepink will be mailing your prize and it will be mailed after Christmas. Congratulations to our winners!

I decided to try another colorscape and went with one of my assignments for color studies in my stitch class. This one is blue-green, yellow, red-orange and violet. I used some short fiber merino that Paula gave me, thanks Paula! I didn’t worry about the edges because I was planning on cropping and trimming the piece at completion.

I then added a layer of Mistyfuse to fuse the top layers of sheer fabric down to the felt. I realize that I could have nunofelted these in place but I wanted a less textured surface.

I then layered some hand dyed silk organza over the top and fiddled around with the small pieces until I like the result. Then I fused it in place with an iron on a cool setting. This isn’t a very good photo but the best I could get.

Then I free motion machine stitched over the silk organza, cropped the edges and cut the organic edges off. You can click on the photo to enlarge it to see the stitching a little better.

For all felt purists out there, I took a photo of the back that is just felt and stitching without being covered up. Perhaps I can make it a reversible piece!

  1. Your colourscape is dramatic and beautiful! The machine stitching gives your piece a lot of movement and we liked seeing the process thank you. (The reverse isn’t too shabby either with its lovely delicate ‘reflection’.)

  2. I love the beautiful mix of colours …very atmospheric and another option for adding subtle shades to a piece .

  3. Thank you for selecting me as one of the winners, totally unexpected! I love how your colorscape turned out! I never thought of using webbing to make a piece, but may do so now as I have some pieces of felt from other projects I want to use for a painting and they won’t felt anymore. The silk makes it really vibrant! Looks great from either side.

    1. You’re welcome! Glad you like the colorscape. Yes, this method would work great for left over pieces of felt and create something new and colorful. The silk really does make a big difference but you can use any type of sheer fabric that you might have.
