Some more dress-making, a sun hat and some fishes
Following on from Tatiana's workshop, I have been making more nuno felt yardage for dress making. This is a top made using the same basic pattern from the orange shibori jacket.
I started this sun hat in January, using some hand dyed merino, the variegated roving yields a lovely mottled colour when felted, I also felted in a piece of hand dyed silk for decoration and texture
Today, I started working on a new wall hanging of fish on a reef. I am using some hand dyed pongee 5 silk and hope that the ripples and sheen will give the impression of water.
The weather was lovely, so after making the nuno felt I moved outside to "work" in the sunshine.
I have just ordered some longer stretcher bars and hope to share the final hanging next week.
