The first panel
This panel was made on top a sturdy base fabric. Then I spread all sorts of yarns, lace and ribbons on it. The top layer is a water-soluble fabric. the whole lot was sewn together using free stitching on a sewing machine.
Here it is after the sewing and after the soluble fabric has been washed away:
Another one made in the same way but smaller:
The second panel
This time we added also felting wool. I have lots of at home in all sorts of colours. I chose my favourites, pinks and purples.
There is a water soluble fabric both below and above the wool. Again I stitched it all together.
Here the soluble fabric is being washed away:
Then I felted the panel by hand, using also steam.
The finished panel measures 27 x 27 cm. Before the sewing and felting it was 35 x 35 cm.
The panel fitted perfectly on a cushion I had. I stitched it on it by hand.
