Play Day Today
I had a great day today! I played with melting felt first. I layered the felt with lots of bits and pieces, covered it with netting, did some FME, then zapped it with the heat gun. It came up quite nice, with lots of crunchy bits and lots of raised areas with some good colours popping out. I then rubbed some green and purple Treasure Gold on the raised areas. This was the challenge for the Textile Challenges Group.
Then I grabbed some fabric that has been sitting in my cupboard for a VERY long time!! I cut it into squares and sewed them together. The first photo is how it started out, the second photo is how it has finished up. It took forever!!!! But I'm really happy with the end results. (Looks better than it does in the photos).
