Felting around

Yesterday i played around with my five needle embellisher and some to be upscaled sweaters. For those of you who don’t know, an embellisher is a machine that uses no thread but only barbed needles to mesh wool fabric and fibers into a new fabric. I had specific ideas in mind, involving polka dots but designing and playing took over. These rectangles will become barrettes after some beading and embroidery. The squares on the right were cut from the initial garments.

  1. I can really see you Anne Marie, having great fun with the gadget. Maybe you can get a used one from someone that wants to upgrade to more needles? Diane, thanks! I had fun felting around today again, this time with browns, blacks, rusts.
