I often refer back to my hand-felted wool swatches to remind myself how a particular wool feels, or how it shrinks / stretches. I hand write details of the wool or mix onto an iron-on backing on the reverse of each one. See more by fibre-art by LittleDeb on Facebook, Folksy and Etsy.
This is my latest wet-felted wallhanging: the 'waves' are getting a final trim before I roll / full the hanging for the last time. Once dried, it will be lightly hand-embroidered and embellished. You can see more of my work at: www.facebook.com/LittleDebFelts
"Scottish Hillside in Spring" by Deborah Iden. This piece was wet-felted, needle-felted, then wet-felted again! Finally, tiny little sheep faces and legs were added with hand stitching. You can see more work by LittleDeb on Facebook, Folksy and Etsy.
This is the start of "Scottish Hillside in Spring". This piece was lightly wet-felted as you see it laid out here; then sheep were needle-felted onto the surface, and eventually the whole thing was felted again. See more work by LittleDeb on Facebook, Folksy and Etsy.
I have finished stitching the fishing nets on this test piece; now I'm adding in some tiny stitches to add definition to the sea thrift. You can follow the progress of this piece on my Facebook page, and see more work by LittleDeb on Folksy and Etsy.
This is a test piece I'm working on, in preparation for a larger wallhanging. I've set up some perspective lines, to ensure that the fishing nets look convincing. See more work by LittleDeb on Facebook, Folksy and Etsy.
'Kirkcudbright Bay looking across to Little Ross' - hand felted wallhanging by Deborah Iden. See more by LittleDeb on Facebook, Folksy and Esty.
Just adding a few stitches to this landscape to bring out the detail on the mountain. The waves are lovely and 'foamy' due to the silk and cotton incorporated into the merino wools. You can see more by Littledeb on Facebook, Folksy and Etsy.
Scraps of Merino pre-felt are wet-felted onto wool tops to create a quick 'sampler' of colours to play with. Once photographed for reference, this will probably be cut up and hand-embroidered into brooches. See more by LittleDeb on Facebook, Folksy and Etsy.
