I've just completed another felt wall hanging. Since making my felted Chakra wall hanging, I have been experimenting with the colour in a more abstract, free form way. I am enjoying the expressive and playful merging of colour to create texture. My latest felt making projects have been quicker and simpler than previous projects, however they have all been satisfying as means of self expression and I'm learning more about the felt making process and its possibilities.
I'm also delighted with my new felting tool, a nifty wooden palm sander from Wingham Wool Work. I find it makes the process a lot more manageable for my hand, arm and back.
Once the felt was made and dried, I used the sewing machine to add organic intersecting lines of running stitch. This breaks up the shape and adds further textural interest.
Below is a detail from the finished piece. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the colour and texture.
