Needle felted tiger lilyNovember 25, 2014
I tried my hand at needle felting, and I really liked this textile technique! I have all kinds of ideas popping into my head of different things I can make and embellish, but my next efforts will not have so many sharp angles as the stem and leaves of this tiger lily. I had a slightly frustrating time trying to finish the edges, which involved trimming and clipping the base fabric to tuck under the flower and adhere it to the black paper with two sided tape. This framed felted flower found a home in my grandmere’s room as a gift for her 93rd birthday. Happy birthday to my Grandmere, whose sewing machine I inherited and learned on!
I will leave you to peruse the process and enjoy the formation of the finished product, which includes some embroidery stitching and beading in the details. I love the texture and dimension the felting technique offers.
