1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Stumpwork Purple Coneflower on: July 07, 2016 07:40:54 PM
Thanks everyone! It was a little scary when it came time to actually cut out the petals. I needed some encouragement from sheepBlue, but in the end it wasn't that bad!
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Stumpwork Purple Coneflower on: July 07, 2016 12:22:40 PM
At the Craftster meetup in Canada a few weeks ago, the amazing sheepBlue gave us a lesson in stumpwork. After my initial badge for the latest felt badge swap ended in epic failure, I decided to try out my newly gained stumpwork skills and create a small purple coneflower for PerfectlyBohemian.

Here is a few in-process photos:

The center was done with french knots with pearl cotton thread over a black felt base- not that you can see the felt...

Then I drew out some petals and began the process of securing the wire to the fabric.

A few split stitches later...

Then I cut the petals out, poked them through the felt base and secured them on the other side. One backing piece of felt later and the piece was done.

Now I have the urge to make everything in stumpwork!!

Those are really cool dream catchers! I can't wait to see what you come up with.

The second photo looks like the roving has been felted in some spots and left natural in others. Felting is super easy to do and you don't need any special tools- just hot water, soap and some friction!

I dye roving all of the time, and if you already have roving, it doesn't need more prepwork to dye. Just don't agitate it too much while it is wet and it should stay together. 

The dog brushes could be used to comb everything out after you dye it, just to make sure everything is nice and fluffy  Grin
