This one is felted with the Bonfire Batts carded from my bag of Botany Waste..
|2nd layer - black Finn wool|
Loving the flashes of colour..
and wondering how much of it will survive felting?
|Part way through.. having just removed the resist|
|And several hours later - it's dark again! |
Thank goodness for my daylight bulb craft lamp..
|A meandering stitch line this time..|
|And I went a bit crazy with the daisies :)|
While I was felting I turned the hat inside out to work on the inside for a while.. but while this was wet you really couldn't tell a difference, the coloured bits were dark and the silk and firestar weren't showing at all. I forgot to turn it the 'right' way..
|When it was dry I started thinking.. 'wow, all that silk just disappeared'..|
until I turned it over and looked inside :) It's like a firework display going off in there lol
I'm actually quite glad I didn't turn it.. I rather like having the quieter side out and knowing what's going on inside :)
|Think I'm going to keep this one!|
