PLAID-ITUDE

Back in January I eagerly dug into a box of felting supplies, a Xmas gift from my son & DIL.  
 The luscious color of this batt of pre-felt is called watermelon.  Layers have been carefully placed and ready for the wet felting process.
After lots of rolling and throwing and with the aid of a variety of 'curls' and pencil roving, this small plaid design was the result.  It's more than a blank canvas yet it could still use more design elements.
 My initial idea called for a lot of beading with the addition of hand embroidery. However, the more I studied the graphic design the more I realized keeping it simple was a better plan.

Nice and just enough embellishments.

I agree. Keeping it simple was just right. Great colors!

It is so important to be able to let go of original ideas and recognize and adapt to what a piece needs.

Interesting. I took a needle-felting workshop last fall and came home with pre-felt too...for needle-felting. It would be interesting to do it up and see if the results are similar...or not. Love your piece!
