Stitching in the morning sun

I dusted off my needle felting machine after more than a year, and selected some eco dyed wool and silk scraps. After bonding them together,  I laid down leftover threads from other projects in a semi random way, along with some upcycled satin ribbon and eco dyed lace.

Here’s how it looked after the layers were bonded together – I really like the way the ribbon ruches up when you needle felt it!

I then played with some stitched embellishment. This is how it looked after I machine quilted the whole piece with automatic and free motion stitching.

My beautiful black computerised Singer sewing machine really came into its own!

Love the way the sun projected the lace curtain shadow onto our dining table …

Now to cut up the finished piece to turn it into fibre pendants. More soon!

  1. It must be the season for needle felting! Like you, I realised yesterday that it’s over 12 months since I last used my machine, and wondered if I should try and sell it. Maybe I will dust it down and start again.
