WOYWW This Week?

For some reason I am a day out it seems, I am posting this on Wednesday 30th November!
I haven't been working on my desk this week I have been in the kitchen!
Not just making meals but felt too!
Below is my first attempt at making 'wet' felt from a kit from Crafty Notions, well the background anyway (green base, blue and lilac stripes) was made by wet felting after it was dry I added the other lines of fibres with a needle felting tool, the centre red/orange circle was made by the needle felting technique.
This was just a practice piece (approx 4x4 ins) I might add some other things to it and make a small hanging.

This is my second piece. Much larger this time (10x10 ins) made in the same way as before (background and inner circle 'wet' felted and the rest needle felted).



Thanks for popping by!

I have absolutely no idea what wet felting entails, but the results are fantastic. I especially like the second larger piece, it's really pleasing!

I love felt! I've never made it yet - it's one of those things "on the back burner" to try one day! Yours is really lovely. Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #62

Beautiful card, the image of the fisherman is great, that's just the sort of thing I would have liked to have done if only I could draw. Loving your story and how you are writing a narrative around the cards.
