My recent bout with a bad cold allowed plenty of time for hand work.....here's
another completed resist dyed felted wool pieces.
As usual, I selected which design to work with, then auditioned beads & threads and began thinking about the approach I'd take to embellish the piece.
Note, the piece has been pressed and edges trimmed slightly before beginning. Additionally, I've added a stabilizer to the wrong side to help prevent distortion during the beading and embroidery process. Even though the wool is felted, it's still rather thin and can easily stretch out of shape.
