Judy at Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria, Virginia, offers loads of vintage linens all hand dyed in a variety of yummy shades. Of course, I couldn't resist and brought home quite a few to experiment felting with. This handkerchief seemed like it would be a great candidate for fancy "pockets" to adorn a fine cardigan (I have one in mind). Simply cut in two and machine needle and wet felt some detail along the top which naturally gathers when it shrinks.
After I shipped all the materials I had dyed for the booth, I had plans to felt samples in each colorway but I found to my dismay that I had SHIPPED IT ALL - even the pieces I had set aside for samples!!!! . . . a little stressed? hahahaha!!! Anyway, I'll just have to use what I still have in my stash and "wing" it - here is an iris created from silk gauze. The background is nuno wool and silk gauze in green.
