Almost ten years ago
I did a felting workshop with the Australian felter
Pam de Groot
combined with eco-printing.
I loved Pam's work and didn't think too much
about the eco-printing.
It turned into a real flop, a failure
and it took quite some time
before I finished the little waistcoat I made there.
Later I tried on my own
but never had any great success with eco-printing.
Until this Stitch Club workshop of
came along !
Wonderful thorough explanations
in her long video !
A LOT of preparations were needed before I could start.
preparing the second bundle
(with the first I was too busy to take pictures hahaha)
A big old pot from the thrift store
picture with and without leaves.
Still wet (so darker) but definitely :
When washed and dry
there will be some stitching on them !!!
But before I had time for that
there was first another bird to finish :
my colourful Jay !
I love that shy bird that visits the peanut garland
in our garden.
(and surprises us with new little oak trees
of forgotten acorns !)
