Hello - It's me!

Yeah! As promised another photo from the felted sign making ; )
I have been doing some more work on the sign today, I cut out the letters out of some pre- felted white felt, then cut letter shaped holes in the sky of my sign. Phew that was scary!
It has been soaped , rubbed and rolled and is not looking too bad. Shall be back with another installment soon : )

Making a Felted Sign

I have started work on a felt sign for The Rainbow Room. It is a design I painted over 6 years ago and it feels great to be actually making it in wool. I spent hours laying all the fibres out like this and they looked so beautiful I was a bit scared of adding the soap and water! I will show some more shots of this as the different elements get added to it.

Red, White & Blue

Something a bit different today, in fact not a rainbow in sight. Just good old Red, White & Blue.
My friend asked me to make some bunting for her little boys bedroom. She is always decorating and is fab at interior & garden design! His room is looking great with a handpainted Union Jack on one wall, lots of red, white & blue, Mini's and all things British and boyish! I hope this bunting will just finish it off nicely, I have enjoyed making it and hope to work on some more bunting ideas soon!!
