    A Scribble Tree

    Last week in Ruth’s post Batik Post she had a scribble tree. I have always liked them so Ruth suggested I make some. Ok them what to make. then I remembered these felt pieces I made a long time ago, I think, because I do not remember making them or what they were for. They seem to be white felt with black silk hanky on them that were make to the prefelt stage, then cut out and put on some black prefelt(maybe) and felted again. I had no idea what to do with these but then thought why not just treat them like pieces of tile and just make a…

    Working on some felt pictures in the fused glass style

      A while ago I saw some fused glass pictures and was inspired to make some summer beach pictures. I like the simple style of this type of picture. I spent a few evenings drawing and colouring pictures. I always forget how relaxing and fun colouring is. I decided to do a seaside picture first as summer has just started. I used I used all prefelt except for a little silk for the waves. I split the prefelt and cut it so it wouldn’t be too thick where they overlap. I tacked everything down lightly with a felting needle. This is how it looked after felting once. I forgot to take one after…
