Hello to everyone at Stitchin Fingers. I've just joined and I'm amazed at all the talent out there! I love making my own felt and then enhancing it with free machine and hand embroidery to make wall hanging art. If you'd like to see my stuff please have a look at my blog www.rosiepink.typepad.co.uk
Hello Janet - Silk tops are stunning on handmade felt. If you've never tried it before, I suggest a making a small sample so that you can see how the silk reacts. You need less silk than you think - spread it thin! I've uploaded three photos of a fruit bowl that I made - it's felt made with a resist - and the pattern on the surface is made with silk tops.
