Everyday in my creative art space, I stare at a stack of recycled felted sweaters and contemplate what to do? I could cut off the sleeves and construct a purse or draw circle templates in graduated sizes for layering adding dimensionality to surface design. Maybe I’ll cut the sweaters into strips similar to a log cabin quilt and create a piece of fabric. Hmm…needle felted fabric.
Perhaps I’ll stare at the recycled sweaters for a bit longer as I ponder the idea of needle felted fabric. Boiled wool lends itself as a support for needle felting, which I’ve got plenty in my stash. Thus, begins the co-mingling of boiled wool and the unspun fibers of roving.
