Felt Belt

Yesterday was so wonderful and relaxing and I spent most of it felting in my "new" studio just gleefully rolling and rubbing away listening to classical music and later sipping a glass wine in the shade on our deck reading a book that I didn't get a chance to finish on our recent beach trip.

On Saturday, we had a birthday bash for our son, Ian, and the weather cooperated for our cookout - the children (6 of them ranging in age from 5 to 12) had a great time.

The belt is finished and now I just need to add a closure - I haven't decided what as yet. I used black merino which really makes the jewel colors of the mosaic fabrics really "pop."
You can get a better look at the texture here - a mixture of burnout velvets and silk and a little black and white silk chiffon print - I love how it tones everything else down and it really adds some interest. Once it was felted very, very well I stretched it into the shape I wanted.


  1. Love your ideas and the belt looks stunning..

  2. Thank you so much for visiting and your nice comments as well!

  3. This belt is really beautiful! I love the colours and the textures, it is amazing how the black wool seems to pull all the others together.
