Experiments with felting



Today I went to a textile group and had a go at nuno felting which is felting thin strands of wool onto silk, chiffon etc. My first attempt was too thick so I added needle felted flowers but I was quite pleased with my second attempt as I put the wool on finer and as the wool felted it dragged the chiffon into quite textural folds. I am going to add to both of these with some beads and threads but it was great to experiment today..so thanks Ann. Think I will make some felted beads tonight once the kids go to bed..they are all running round playing captain underpants at the moment..ha ha!!
