I’ve been enjoying the weekly challenges provided by Textile artist.org . This was my response to Anne Kelly’s workshop.
I’ve used a mixture of commercial felt, dyed blanket and felted jumpers.
This was a chance to use some buttons. I have a lot of buttons.
This bird is based on one of my doodles. It gave me ideas for the stitching. I’ve used fly stitch, lazy daisy, blanket stitch, straight stitches and some French knots. The threads are rayon, which come from the handweavers studio.
I’ve been playing with weaving as well lately. I’ll share what I’ve done in a bit.
