The notion of creating a blog had been percolating in my mind for some time. Sol, a new friend, who resides in Argentina, joined our Christmas celebration this year. She patiently helped me get started. Thank you again Sol!
I knew I'd adore this gal even before we said our first hello. I was told she loves bright colors and heart motifs. With that knowledge, I designed this small bead embellished felted wool piece for her.
Since the edges of felted wool don't need to be turned under, it's the perfect medium for a technique I coined 'bead applique'. The beading actually attaches (appliques) the felted wool motifs to the background fabric, embellishing the work at the same time, adding texture and sparkle.
