Rainbow Leaves




I decided that I wanted to make my leaves out of wool felt and angelina fibers. That machine is also easier to move around. I used water soluble stabilizer to felt the shape. The leaves are about 7 inches long and around 5 inches wide. I did have to lug my sewing machine downstairs for the stitching. Once I am finished with the felting and the stitching I cut loosely around the shape. I had a container of hot water ready to soak them in. The stabilizer helps bind the fibers together when it dissolves. I am really pleased at how they turned out.
Nothing new on the studio. We are at a standstill.
