Felt & Fabrics

I made this using some of the things I bought from Harrogate this year and some that I bought last year.  I used all sorts of fibres and materials including silk rods, scrim, hessian, felt, mulberry bark, throwsters waste and silk cocoons, as well as buttons, sequins, hat pins, beads and mount board. 

I arranged my layout onto the hessian and machine sewed the pieces in place.  The sequins and buttons were hand sewn afterwards and the beads added to the pins.

I wanted to use some bright colours for a change, I think I managed it!!!!
