Today it’s back to the sewing machine after a break for shows, workshops and some much needed gardening! Just finished the stitching on this felt wrap
- a commission for a lovely lady who’s wearing it to
a wedding in a couple of weeks time…
This is the second felted wrap I’ve made and you can
read more about the first one here...
It was part of my display at Quarr Abbey last week
and it was bought by a visitor from Scotland.
All the surface threads & textures are felted into the fabric base.
I dyed the natural cotton purple but you can see how the different coloured
wool fibres have felted through the fabric resulting in some
interesting blends on the reverse.
The machined zig-zag stitch is purely decorative and makes a
lovely pattern on both sides...
The wraps are light-weight, cosy and easy to wear especially when
fastened with a matching felt flower!
Each one is quite unique and can be worn over a plain dress for a
special occasion or as an extra layer to take on holiday.
They seem to be really popular and versatile…
I shall definitely be making more!
