The Lady in Blue





Needlefelted of course on my Embellisher machine lol,I received my book this morning Needle-Felting Magic by Margo Duke,I was inspired to make this piece ( A Book Cover),its a very thin book but a few lovely projects and handy tips for the beginner.

I broke more needles,now i know not to use ribbons ! but it was worth it to get the effect i was after,I am totally in love with this machine at the moment,each piece is a new experience and a learning curve,now i must find more different coloured fibres to use,off to Brighton tomorrow,hopefully find something there.Forgot to say the beaded ruffles under the image are dye'd baby wipes lol The whole piece is sewn and backed onto A4 card stock and folded

And The Lady in Pink..........

Hi Pattie. Loving your pieces with the embellisher machine. I found a site called Barnyarns that sells compatible embellisher needles cheaper than anywhere else. I'm going to try them out next time I need them.
Love all the blues and textures in this piece : )

Pattie, this is lovely. How close to Worthing are you? We'll be at the Textiles Art Forum day on 24th with our embellisher supplies - including needles... Come and say 'hello' if nothing else.

Pattie, I the book I was talking about is 'Embellish, Stitch, Felt' by Sheila Smith. It's on Amazon (where you can look inside) and at the Book Depository. Enjoy your day in Brighton!

Beautiful pieces of art Pattie - the machine really has taken you to another level. It's amazing to think that the machine doesn't use any cotton but you get such fantastic results.
