nuno felt

I have eventually finished my first piece for this year, for the City and Guilds class. I made a set of felt accessories, including a pair of wristwarmers and a flower corsage. The inspiration for these items came from an annual flower from my garden last summer. It is a beautifully veined petunia......

A pretty flower but I looked up the "meaning" of it and it means anger and resentment!
My two pieces are made from nuno felt using dyed silk gauze as a ground.

I tried to make the flower corsage as similar to the petunia flower as possible.

I embellished both items with seed beads in various sizes.

Now just the paperwork to do and the accompanying book, better hop to it
Bye for now, ali.


  1. Beautiful Ali...love those curls nestling with the beads in the close up!
