Embroidery is engrossing in its way, but it lacks the tactility and – let’s face it – manual labour required of felt making.
I don’t know why but yesterday I had a sudden urge to get felting. Maybe it was something to do with Valentine’s Day, but I thought I would try making a felt bird pod using wool packaging, as the coarse texture and bits of vegetation add to the “organic” feel.
The bird is the stylist’s own, as they say, but I might leave it there a little while pour encourager les autres. 😉
