The feedback I receive regarding my resist dyed felted wool/beading combination is fun to read. It sounds like many of you are encouraged to give it a try!!
One factor to keep in mind when using resist hand-dyed wool is how much energy the fabric already brings to the piece. The fuzzy texture adds more complexity. Then....adding beadwork is another layer. Balancing each is necessary in order to obtain a cohesive successful product.
I purchased a bunch of agate slices recently and am itching to use some...hoping I can find a good match with my felt.
This stone could have better contrast but I'm hoping the beadwork will help to frame and set it off....cause I'm going for it!
Not bad......I think this will work. Though I need to be careful about the weight. The felt is only 6.5" x 5.5" so it can't carry too much.
I'm so in love with attaching this type of stone to my work.....and am happy that one of my workshop at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in February will feature this technique!!
