  • I have a top that's made of a loosely woven linen fabric and, as I wear it, gets bigger and bigger and longer and longer until it's hanging off my shoulders and drooping around my knees ... not a good look ;-)

    So I thought I'd have a go at shrinking it down to submission by felting some nuno patchwork on to the upper half. I made some prefelted nuno sheets, cut them into strips, and laid them in place (after placing a sheet of resist inside the top).

    It has definitely done the job - the fabic no longer stretches as I wear it and the whole thing holds its shape well so I'm chuffed!

    Two of Nina's Hebridean ladies ... the first one is Pixie, who is - hopefully - a mum to be, and due to lamb in April.

    Here is Luxie (short for Luxurious) with her beautifully variegated fleece.

    What a gorgeous rug that would make ;-)

    It's been fun embellishing these pieces of nuno felt with free motion embroidery. The plan is to make a wall hanging: I'll cut them up and reassemble them on to some natural hessian, and then do some more stitching.
