This week I worked on two pieces. I am trying to take it easy, but I cannot just sit and do nothing, so I made a few small projects, one still needs finishing and one is part of a BOM.
I love to do needle felting, though I am still making mistakes and it is not something that you can just take apart so I leave the mistakes and learn from them. I wanted to do a scenery, so I drew up a doodle to work from.
I use a wool felt for the back and then I felt onto that. I was planning on making an eyeglass case but it came out larger, so now I need to decide what to make with it. It is 7" x 5", but I will lose a half inch on the sides when I sew a backing to it. I usually put a lining in it, so that makes it stronger for holding things and with the wool back, it makes a nice cushion for phones and glasses.
Not the best photo, the details are raised and I added some stitching for fun. I do wish I could have made the seagulls smaller, they are a bit over powering. I also need to do the backgrounds first, then add the design so I can have more control over the movement of the fibers and not have to fit them around the items.
The stitchery is part of a BOM by Suzy's Sitcom, this is the third block, so I am all caught up and ready for next month's BOM. Next I need to decide on how I want to sash them or maybe make then with a double border to make it larger, not really sure how big it will be, but I would like to make it lap size.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. We have rain tomorrow but a nice day on Sunday, so I am trying to decide where to go for a fun adventure.
