Recently I Nuno felted a large piece (using a dyed silk scarf as the base). I proceeded to cut it into several smaller sections, refelting with more roving to encompass the edges where the scarf had become visible.So....now what to do with these pieces? Well.....bead embellish them of course! I prefer to stabilize the fabric with a non-fusible lightweight interfacing (used mainly for garment construction) to help hold the weight of the beadwork. Then I raid my bead stash....pull some options to begin the design and I'm all set for hours of evening one eye on the TV watching. (I do not have control of the remote in this household.....really do any of you??)
The focal point of a large glass 'donut' was added first.
Followed by simple seed/bugle bead units.
