I have an embellisher attachment for my Bernina, so when I had a load of scraps of felt I embellished them all together to create a large piece of cloth. It took a while to decide what to do with it as it was so yummy, but in the end I made three books to sell at our exhibition.
This is the first one I made, to which I added a leather strap. The buckle is from an old watch strap (never throw things away!). I made the strap using some scraps of leather and attached it using my new rivets. That was decidedly tricky.
You can see some beading on here. Felt and beads go well together. It’s the combination of textures. As well as felt I included some dyed scrim and various bits of yarn.
I saw something similar to this on Pinterest and thought I’d try it out. I love the effect. The twig came from a beach in Devon.
I also made these rings. Hopefully they’ve sold so I can make some more as I do like making them and want to try some new designs.
