Wet Felting with Embroidery and Beading

This week I thought I would show you the wet felted piece that didn’t make it into my doll club’s two colour challenge. (Challenge is described here.)

After choosing the colours and felting the piece I did some free motion embroidery in places and added green beads in others.

I then decided to do some hand embroidery to add some contrast.  I added some french knots among the green beads.

Once I  abandoned the idea of using just 2 colours I added the orange beads.

  1. This piece would be such a cool background for your brightly coloured fish!

  2. I am drawn to abstraction in art and really like and admire this change of pace for you – it works very well – very painterly…
