Project Description

What are you most proud of? I love the needlefelting combined with the silk texture and colors. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do the dyeing first and get the background you like - then think about how additional decoration would look.

What you will need

  • Flag-folded raw silk
  • dyed and overdyed three times. With needlefelted wool chain embellishment.

Q&A with Jane Dunnewold

Jo-Mo asked:
Love your dye results. I agree the felting on silk is beautiful with nice contrasts. Cotton can be trickier to combine with needle felting...there's just something about silk :)
Jane Dunnewold answered:
IT helps to use a silk with some thickness and "tooth" like this raw silk. I would guess that cotton and the smoother silk surfaces are problematc with the needlefelting because there isn't enough to "shred" together to ensure the felting will be permanent.
