AEDM day 11 - felted seahorse

What Art Every Day Month is doing for me is focusing my attention on following through an idea.  My 'emergency' tags on which to make something if all else fails are still in their packet!  I used one of yesterday's  as inspiration for my felted seahorse.

I started with some curly locks and used them to 'sketch out' the outline of the seahorse using my needle felting tool.

I then added in various colours of merino wool before felting in bits of felt, organza and old scarf!

Next stop, the sewing machine ;)


oooo, just love it :)  Now it will sit for a while whilst I decide what to do next!
