Felt Postcard

Tuesday 3 March 2009

It's fun to make postcard-sized felted pieces, they're done in relatively quick time and you can play around with embellishments, or not, as you please.

For this one, I half-felted some merino wool, one piece in lime green, the other in denim blue. I then cut out some 'finger' shapes and reversed the colours in the spaces left behind. The piece then needed some careful felting to finish the process, to ensure that the felt had properly bonded. When I was sure of that, the whole thing was wrapped in bubble-wrap and rolled in a bamboo placemat for some serious fulling. Finally, it is rinsed and dried.

This time I couched on some contrasting nubbly yarn, again in finger shapes, just to emphasize the design. What do you think?
