My current nuno felted project continues to evolve. In case you missed the here for part one and here for part 2. that you are all caught'll notice that I've cut my piece into 3 sections.  Each will be bead embellished as individual pieces of work.  Hopefully I will come up with a totally new approach/design for each when the time comes.
 What I wanted to share with you is a small problem that resulted from cutting the piece apart.  Remember, the wool roving has been wet felted onto a hand dyed silk scarf material.  The edges of the felted piece are nicely finished, encasing the scarf...but the new cut edge isn't.  One could leave it as is, but it wouldn't match the look or feel of the other edges.  So, I opted to get the soap/water/roving back out for one more treatment.
By adding some roving strands along that edge....and working them into the already felted piece, this side will now match the others, plus have a bit more strength than it otherwise would have.

Next step.....yippie.....begin some beading.....stay tuned.
