Fibre Collage

Hi Everyone
I seem to be going off  in another direction now and i'm in my element !! 
I've been doing a Fibre Collage Course with Susan Sorrell and i've had so much fun lately with felt, material, embroidery and beads. Zed (feltbyzed) sent me some gorgeous material that i stitched over and i practised my straight stitch,blanket stitch,back stitch and Victoria Crowder Paynes thread salad. i love it
This is what i've made and my daughter (15) loved it so i added some fishy kiss's ( kisses) just for her. I'll put it on a board background so she can hang it in her room.
The background on this is a felt piece i made for it although the course was using a material sandwich, this is what i wanted to do. Using felt , embroidery and beads is for me so i finally found my thing !!
Cant wait to start another course soon, i havent finished with this yet but just wanted to share anyway

                                                          Happy Felting & Stitching


  1. This is wonderful, as are the other hanging felts you have been working on . It does feel good when we find something that just feels "right" to make and why it is so important to keep experimenting until we find our voice .

  2. Thankyou krex, your absolutely right and it took me a while to find but using felt with embroidery and beads is the best thing ever and i'm loving it :)

  3. OMG Karen this is AWESOME! I LOVE it xx
