Felted Picture

A felted bird eating a berry!  My friend Lorraine showed me a book 'Felt & Stitch' by Moy Mackay and  this picture is copied from that book I started off wet felting the background then needle-felted the details finishing off with machine and hand stitching  It's almost 3d so wont go in a glass frame so I am not sure whether to mount it on a wooden frame or make it into a cushion

Loving your fabric arts lately - I've always fancied making a rag rug.

Lovely bit of felting, the pink and vibrant blue look great together!

fantastic..it might go in one of those deep frames but I think it would look good as a cushion too..great..must get on with one myself

Just found this as I browsed your site. I have just aquired this book myself, (want to have a go at the sheep!) and wanted to say a very big well done, I hope my attempt will come out a fraction as good. Love your blog and the shower rug too!
