I hope it shows a piece of wet felt; I have tried to make a plant pot holder, I could not get the bottom rounded properly, but I am happy with how it turned out. I have turned down the top and a plant pot does fit very well.
It is pretty and I am sure your plants will like it. When you made the resist did you make the bottom round like 1/3 of a circle? it gives you the room to flatten it out the bottom.
I made a lamb head for my grand daughter to rest her glasses on when she goes to sleep. sorry they are so big it won't let me shrink them. I need to fix his nose its to piggy but that's were the glasses sit.
Thank you all for nice comments. I did not make the resist bottom as round as I should have, next time I will definitely do that. I was surprised how well yarn felted in with the wool, on the outside and the inside too. I have a variety of wool skeins left over from some tapestry I made years ago.
This is what I have been working on lately. Trying to get it done by Monday when I have my online class again. These are "laidwork" stitches or couching on the base. Then I am doing surface stitches over top of that in the Jacobean embroidery style. These are a bunch of stitches that I have never done before and I have to say that I think they are a bit fiddly and painstaking. I have a written sheet pattern that I am writing all the stitch names down on. It's done with wool weight lace thread, mostly hand dyed on painted cotton muslin.
Lovely variety of stitches, Ruth. Very cute glasses holder, Ann, I’m sure your granddaughter will love it. Very nice plant pot cover, Charley. Looks very snug. As Ann says, if you make the bottom of your resist rounded like a letter ‘u’ it will shape to the bottom.
I’ve started Fiona Duthie’s felt & paper class this week. I’ve made 3 samples so far and am really enjoying the exploration. I will post some photos soon.
