Handmade Felt


This is a little hanging I made for my sister who has just made a huge life changing decision in her life and I'm really proud of her. The quote reads 'In her heart she knew she was ready to fly'. This is also one of the first pieces of handmade felt I had made recently with some silk through it, I also stitched some beads around the edges. The centre panel is painted tyvek which I then stamped and stitched to the felt and added a little handmade cage over the heart and wings. TFL. I have some more pieces to add this week for some friends but will add after they receive them :-)

So beautiful piece of felt. I guess your sister was very happy when she recieved this gift.
Your felt making is very creative. I tryed it a little myself with a little bit of luck and a little bit of very curious result..
