I am happy to be playing with fabrics again - silks and luscious dyed bits, felts and found bits.
Catherine starts with 'needle felted' wool by the metre - my choice, 2 - 3 metres of grey - I want to make a wrap/vest.
In preparation, I dyed some rotton sari silk and old bandage cotton muslin [rust and green tea, and commercial 'mastic' colour],
...the green tea and rust furthered the rotting of the sari silk- hmmmmm...
...and after washing and ironing, I am left with the most delightful little blobs of silver embroidered sari snippets,
...then I stitched some snippets onto a piece of silk,
Wish me luck - I am a felting newbie.
