Felt to Stitch: Creative Felting for Textile Artists

Sheila Smith

Publisher:B.T. Batsford

In 'Felt to Stitch', acclaimed feltmaker Sheila Smith explores the possibilities of making and using handmade felt for stitch. Felt is an incredibly versatile medium that is easy to make and manipulate and provides the ideal base for surface embellishment. Handmade felt allows you a degree of control and creativity that ready-made fabrics cannot replicate. This book shows you how to make your own felt, select and dye your own colours, build unusual textures with felt fibres and further embellishment, and manipulate the felt to produce three-dimensional pieces. With sample projects that illustrate the main techniques, Felt to Stitch will address the main elements of design in felt : * Colour: blending commercially dyed fibres; dyeing processes for wool fibres; applying colour as surface design * Line and shape: methods for creating clear outlines in felt; pre-felts for use on inlay, applique and mosaic. * Texture: combining felt and fabric — Nuno felt; embellishing with other fibres. Form/three-dimensional felt: seamless hollow forms. * Other techniques: multi-layered felts; low relief; webs/grids.
