After a week of quality family time.....my fingers are itchin' for some stitchin'.
...So, out came some hand-dyed and felted wool....Then, inspired by a shibori article by Holly McLean in Quilting Arts in April/May 2013, I wondered if this dyeing/painting method could translate to felted wool.
Due to the thickness of the wool, I decided to pleat the material, securing with string. Textile paint was applied to the folds, allowed to dry and the process was repeated twice more altering some of the paint color.
Here's what that process yielded.....so...what to do next?? Well, I have some ideas....stay tuned.
I'm posting this to Nina-Marie's Off The Wall Friday. Check it out.
