Abstract Blue (felt card) (b.5 June 2009)

This was one of my first real attempts at making a felt picture. I love the organic nature of the shapes which were creating very simply using soap, hot water and a bit of rubbing!

This is not creating hard-wearing felt, I'm glad to say - no rolling it back and forwards several hundred times. I was able to create this by spraying the wool design lightly with water, and then covering it with bubble wrap and rubbing it gently to mat the fibres, and then finishing the job by hand. Once the felt was nearly dry, I needle-felted some of the stray strands to get better definition in the design, and to keep it holding together better. Using similar shades has created a depth to the design, which reminds me of the aurora borealis.
