Theme Thursday - Felt


I was very excited and happy to see that the theme for Theme Thursday this week was FELT. Since Christmas, I have been experimenting with nuno felt which is a Japanese technique of laying down wool with silk and helping the wool fibres migrate through the silk so that the two bond and become one.

I think I will play with this piece a little more, maybe add a few beads to add to the feeling of luxury, and then send it to made4aid to help towards the relief funds in Haiti.

Happy Theme Thursday guys and thank you so much for choosing FELT x

The piece seems very soft and delicate, and I think that its destiny adds even more beauty to it. The process, as you so well describe, seems fascinating, too. Cheers!

Lovely, particularly with the branch, but of course the big problem is you so want to touch, touch, touch!

Hi Jasmine, As you have so many comments for your wonderful necklace (below)I just wanted to say hello here, and thank you so much for becoming a follower of my blog. This piece is stunning! I am a big felt fan, but with very little experience, so will look forward to picking up some tips from your blog!

this looks so beautiful

I've been meaning to experiment with weaving in wool and silk, and then felting - that achieves a mix of the fibres too, would be fun to have a go
