Handmade Felt on a Summers DayNow that it looks like the weather has finally got its act together I thought I would show you a picture of my Summer Meadow.
If you look closely you can see that it has all kinds of gorgeous stuff in there. Different kinds of wool, silk fibres, hand dyed cotton muslin, and stitch.
The stitching, which is the final stage when you are making a panel like this, really adds so much detail and dimension to handmade felt that it doesn't feel quite finished to me till I have done some. But then I am a stitchy kind of a girl I suppose.
On the Fabulous Felt Course we have a session on stitching and embellishing our felt with beading and ribbons and lovely stuff like that. Hand stitching is easy to learn and is such a nice way to pass the time!
