    This is a fabulous autumn image but I also wanted to show you the stitching on this leaf which was created with a roving type yarn It s felted down very well but has styayed raised so not only has the colour added to the pattern the yarn has added to the texture It pays to experiment Tags applique cushion patchwork Posted in past workshops No Comments Patchwork and applique cushion Thursday October 3rd 2013 I ve been meaning to show you this for a while temporarily lost some of the photos found them forgot to load them up found them again and got on with it Sometimes projects don t work out and I put them in the pre felt bag or if my fibres are starting to look a little sad I make it into pre felts it stores a lot longer that way The delight problem is that you have a stash of pre felts and so I wanted to show you ways of using them up I began by chopping up some pieces of yellow pre felt and then happliy found a space dyed yarn with yellows blues and purples that I thought would be great for the stitching together I ve used the pre felt poppy flower as my applique centre which I ve attached with blanket stitch and then attached the patchwork pieces by means of simple straight stitches Using a contrasting yarn makes the stitching part of the design and I also like the extra colour it s provided As you can see for the reverse I ve used 3 colours of prefelt for the background and then simple shapes for the applique design Although I ve still allowed the stitches to show and become part of the deign the yarn used is tonal and has blended in far more It s very grey here so please excuse the colours on these next photos but you can at least see the finished effect It s a lovely piece of felt and the colours do blend together very well So well in fact that I had to rescue it from my Daughter s bedroom to show it to you When felted down there are no seams just a nice smooth fabric For me this side is the most successful due mainly I think to the contrast in colours provided by the yellow and the purple It s a fun process and there are still one or two places left on the workshop on Tuesday 9th October if you fancy joining in Next time I ll show you a sample worked n naturals Tags cushion patchwork Posted in Felting 1 Comment Subscribe to my blog Join my mailing list to receive latest workshop dates and felt news or My Flickr Photos Hints and Tips Tutorials Tutorial Felt cord making Tutorial 3D Pod Tutorial Nuno felt scarf Tutorial Trollen weaving Tutorial Seamless Felt Handbag Tutorial Seamless Felt Notebook Categories Book Review Curlew Diaries Featured Maker Felt

    a cushion The other side is in natural colours and I should have photos for you tomorrow Meanwhile I began by randomly cutting up and stitching together various pieces of Merino pre felt part made felt in crazy patchwork style It s definitely a style where the more you put on the better it gets I ve not only chosen to show my stitching but also to use contrasting colours of wool yarn to stitch with to add to the general craziness The photo above shows it stitched and ready for final felting I ve cut out motifs and circles from past projects and appliqued them to the cushion You don t want to pull the stitching so tight you make the felt form ridges but it needs to be tight enough to stop the pieces separating during felting Some pre felts have patterns carded wool or plain colours and at least one has Ramie fibre added I made it larger than needed so I could cut a neat edge if I wanted to but in the end I decided that the cushion should have an irregular edge and have blanket stitched around in a contrasting pink yarn I ve not added any other embellishments but you could easily add buttons sequins stitching and items like fringing at this stage It s quite fun durable and a great way to use up those scraps and to practice your stitching Tags crazy patchwork cushion Posted in Felting 2 Comments Crazy patchwork Saturday March 12th 2011 More work from Water Street School Year three were working on a theme of light and dark and I took along some examples of crazy patchwork which was very popular during victorian times The idea is that you can take patches of varying sizes and shapes and overlap them Each patch may also be decorated with motifs embroidery or buttons and each seam is also decorated with embroidery or lace etc The more you put on the better it looks I began by asking each child to draw a triangle and then to work within the confines of that shape As the theme was light and dark I had some children working in light colours on a white background and the remainder working in dark and bright colours on a dark background I wasn t sure what exactly I would do with the triangles when completed but thought working on this shape would allow me quite a few options when I came to make the hanging I decided the school probably had enough rectangular hangings by now and that three smaller ones would mean they d have more places where they could be displayed I understand these will be in the cloakroom area where the children will see them each day Bearing in mind that some of these children will only ever have used a needle and thread in school before and are aged 7 8 I think they did incredibly well A few completed their
