1  Starry Night in Felting: Completed Projects by twixthemaddog on: October 10, 2013 09:45:42 AM
I had a problem knowing where to post this - embroidery? fibre art? art? - in the end I put it here because I started from the felt.

I made the sample, carved it, and only decided how I was going to use it afterwards.  It's loosely stitched to appliqued vintage wool fabric, and embellished with hand embroidery and beads.

I've done a few art pieces this way and I love the freedom of it.

2  African Lion in Quilting: Completed Projects by twixthemaddog on: September 26, 2013 10:10:41 AM
I don't know whether this counts as a quilt or not LOL - it is quilted and appliqued though. About 24" square and made of a vintage South African sarong (kanga). I cut the border print off to make the mane.

3  Help with framing in More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions by twixthemaddog on: August 23, 2013 02:27:58 AM
Hi, I posted this under embroidery as well since it's mixed media!

When I've previously made textile work it's been quite large and I've made them as wall hangings with sleeves or tabs.

But now I've made some smaller pieces (mixed media/machine embroidery/beads etc) and want to surface mount them in box frames. What's the best way to attach them to the mountboard?


Thanks

5  Two needlefelted puppets - my first needlefelting and my first craftster post! in Felting: Completed Projects by twixthemaddog on: April 29, 2012 10:18:15 AM
I am studying illustration and we were set a brief that involved making a puppet theatre. I decided to make the two human puppets by needlefelting. They don't have an armature, just external sticks and wires to move them - we only had three weeks and that included story, sound track, theatre, puppets, set and script!

This is Chris (our tutor), complete with his trademark braces, earring and flat cap



And this is Anastasia (one of the other students)


And here is the actual show in all it's wobbly glory!


Hope you like.
