Last week I needle-felted a blue trivet with Icelandic wool. I dyed the wool a bright blue after I needle felted the wool locks together. This week I made sunflower trivets. I also used Icelandic wool to make them along with a darker wool to make the center of the sunflower. I dyed one trivet yellow and another one a yellow/orange. I experimented with the breed of sheep wool used in the center of the sunflower. One of the centers was made with Icelandic wool and on the other I used Rhone.
I made a trivet with Icelandic wool, using the locks and needle felting them in the center. After I got the center needle felted, I dyed the trivet a brilliant blue. What do you think?? Honestly, how do you like it?
What project(s) have you done lately??? I made a needle felted purple wool rug and I have some pictures of the steps I took to make it.
Raw BFL Wool from Tenney's
Rug made with wool locks. The locks were dyed in a rainbow dye which contained pink, blue, red, lavender, and violet. The use of the various colors gave the rug dimension, variation, and interest. I needle felted the locks onto a thick gray felt. Most of the wool is BFL but some are mystery wool.
I started placing locks on the outside of the felt which I cut in a circular shape. I needle felted about 7 rows of locks and each row was about an inch in-between.
