nuno felted eco-dyed embellishments, my first try

those bubbles were caused by the blusty windy weather ......... well, it stoped raining for a minute!

had trouble with the felting of the embellished pieces, had to add another layer of prefelt, then it worked fine.
I think the reason would be because the pieces were boiled in the eco dye pot, that would have changed the structure of the prefelt, so it couldn't traverse into the silk, maybe it was just too "heavy" with all the embellishments?????????????

In details:
                                        


fascinating how the stitches form the pattern in the felting...........
       

love this last piece, is very subtle, was a prefelt with a lovely leave pattern from a bundle, covered it with a silk gauze and did the embroidery.........

Sehr schön, liebe Madeleine. Es ist einfach sehr fein geworden. Hast du es nach dem Sticken gekocht?
Gerade vorhin kaufte ich Soja-Milch, danke für deinen Tip!

Liebe Grüsse
Brigitte

Hi there, looks like you have been having a good time with the dyes..I'm doing it too, and there is a small group of India's deciples around here (Daylesford sort of.). I'm about to go and put another dye pot on.
Cheers, Sue

thank you Brigitte and Julie....

Ja Brigtte,
ich stickte und dann belegte es mit Eucalyptus und andere Blatter, machte ein Bundle(?) kochte es eine Stunde und voila!
Ist mein Probierstuck, denn ich musste sehen wies kommt, aber jezt werd ich's ungefaerbt filzen, denn es sieht fantastisch aus ohne Farbe, dann kann ich entscheiden ob ich's eco faerbe oder nicht....

liebe Gruesse und alles gute mit der Soy Milch, weisst Du, die Baumwolle kommt meistens nicht so stark im Eucalyptus aufnehmen, andere Pflanzen hab ich noch nicht darauf gebraucht

nice to hear from you, let me know if you want a get together in Dayleford area or here in Bendigo, be nice to share sometimes.
Be good if you let me know what you are doing, I am very interested.....
At the moment I am trialling some nuno felted scarves, need the felting exercise I think....
