It's still a work in progress but I've done a little bit on my Lulworth / Arish Mell project. I cut up a couple of the small pieces of handmade felt I made and layered them up along with some dry fibres, yarn and scrim then needle felted it all together to make a new small piece of felt. I stitched a few details on such as some horizontal big stitches to represent the knee-achingly steep steps on the the walk from Lulworth and down to Arish Mell!
It is only small at 15cm x 20cm so I could make a set of 3, or work a bigger piece next.
Below are some of the dry pieces laid out. I quite liked it like that, nice and simple.
Below is the picture cropped in Photoshop. I often find it hard to choose if I like a nice neat straight edge or the natural edge of the felt!
I haven't finished many things recently as I've been so busy, but I have been playing when I do get time and trying lots of little sample ideas out like stitching yarn through scrim then felting it, felting in knitting, needle felting scrim etc. Fun!
I'm off on holiday soon and had to empty my camera and phone as they are full up. I was perusing some of my photos - I take so many of random things! - and I found this rather nice photo of a pineapple. I think he would look rather gorgeous in felt and stitch, perhaps in lots of nice unusual colours. But he'll have to get in the queue behind the pomegranates and peacocks and other odd ideas :)
How do you organise all of your creative ideas? Mine all just seem to be having a big bun fight with no order!
