Explore the scrumptious possibilities of felt with me as I create hats, boots, wall hangings, figurines, 3D structures and a sketchbook.
The aim of this book is to experiment with a new process and see how it can be combined and layered with sewn textiles, threads and yarns.
I called this book "Melting and Felting", not because there are a great deal of my melting techniques in this book but because the spirit of my work is still the same. It's still about "melting together" different textures into one piece.
Melting and Felting includes:
Rachelís really basic and lazy felt technique
Adding felt to textiles
Adding textiles to felt- using up those odds and ends and off-cuts
Adding threads, yarn, string and even moss to felt!
Needle-felting flat pictures and figurines
Hand-stitching into felt with yarn
Experimental felted shawls, scarves, hats and boots
Felt vessels, sculptures, structures and cocoons
Making a mess!
Felt sketchbook- using up all those felt experiments
Crammed full of work in progress photos
