This is probably going to be the least informative post I’ve ever done, but it has nice pics! A while ago, Cathy sent me some wool and fabric which she’d dyed with natural/plant dyes. I tend to be a little bit ‘messy’ and had misplaced them, but found them last weekend. I took them with me to the well-being centre and made a piece of felt with some English 56’s and lots of the wool and locks Cathy sent. Unfortunately, I forgot to write down what I used and left everything at the centre, so I will edit the post once I get the info! So, this is the finished piece with all the samples:
Last year I made a couple of vase covers using hand dyed Domestic 56 wool from Cathy (Luvswool). Normally, I like the bright colors, but I really liked these subtle natural colors. Here is front and back.
But it seemed like it needed something. So, it has been sitting in the UFO pile waiting for some inspiration on how to finish it.
A few weeks ago when I wrote about crochet, Lyn provided a link to make a rose. https://feltingandfiberstudio.com/2017/03/19/discovering-textures-in-crochet/
So, I tried it. It was very easy, thanks Lyn!
Then of course, I had to learn to make leaves and a stem.
When I laid it on the vase cover, I really liked it.
Then I sewed it on. Here it is finished.
What UFOs have you finished recently?
