Photos as promised

Here they are photos of my embellished pieces. I am still adding to the second piece. I am not sure when enough is enough. I have to keep in mind the size of the bag and how something may end up outside of the bag front or back.
This is the piece I started in the Embellisher class and I added several more yarns and roving over several days following the class.

This is the piece I have been working on at home. I love the way you can take a piece of fabric and lay it over another. The fabric changes texture and look. I added some roving all around the center fabric as it did not seem to want to hold. The upper left fabric was sheer fabric that Nancy, the instructor, brought as scraps for us to use. It really turned out lovely and I overlaid some roving over this.

Flowers in both pieces are inexpensive silk flowers from Walmart. For them to stay, I needed to add roving to the centers.

It is really fun to just sit and let the machines needle, needle punch while you move the fabric around. No thread to break or bobbin to run out.

  1. I love the look of it so far. I can't wait to see the finished bag.

  2. That looks so great! I've seen the felting on Craftster.org and thought it was neat but I hadn't heard of doing it with a machine. (If I'm understanding that right). It's so neat; really a piece of art. Thanks for the pics!
