Needle Felted Wrist Ornament

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.
