Wool and buttons



Been playing with wool, buttons and my heat gun. I cut lots of strips of wool and totally covered a piece of fusible material, pressed them all over with the iron and hey presto, the wool stuck to it. I ran it through the sewing machine and added burnt orange organza ribbon, a blue dyed tumble dryer sheet and a piece of wine coloured organza. Once all secured, I took my heat gun and blasted away. The wine organza and the tumbe dryer sheet burnt away to reveal the wool fibres. I added a piece of mesh (picked up at yesterdays show), a few buttons, which I think would have looked better sewn on in a purple or orange, but as I'm just building up my supplies, I don't have any of those colours, yet, so I used black instead. Added the small purple button and piece of worded twill (again picked up at yesterdays show).
