Felt and Shells

today i had a fun time with felt off-cuts and shells. the felt was left over from a few years ago when i had hand felted a large piece of merino with silk fibres and then plant dyed it before cutting it up to make a kimono-style top. i always knew those little off-cuts would one day come in handy – today was the day…

i cut the felt into strips and sewed it into cases – like little bowls – and then glued the shells, pebbles and bits of coral into them…
