Before I took up feltmaking, I worked for a few years making quilts and appliqués . While making appliqués from cotton fabric, I ventured into using synthetic felt for the ease of cutting the shapes and sewing them. I then began learning about real felt–I mean material made from wool. And thought I’d try my hand at it, which I talked about and showed photos of in my previous post.
Here are photos of some of the synthetic felt appliqués that I’ve made.
I have made art works all my life. Arts of May shows some of my explorations in different media and the inspiration I take from other artists and works. An earlier blog, of humans and nature, concentrates on my photographs of natural places that help my spirit.

They are well done and beautiful! I like your color sense as well.
Thank you very much!
These are really well done and very different from traditional felt I’ve seen! Quite beautiful! Thanks for posting, Aurum
