Summer Collage Scarf

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

Saturday I took another class at The Fiber Studio – Nuno Felted Summer Collage Scarf taught by Jill Lynn.  What a great class!!

The night before I did some frantic last minute shibori dyeing of some ugly silk, cotton and linen shirts I bought at a local thrift store.  What else are second bathroom bathtubs for anyway?

Jill was great at sharing all sorts of  little tips and tricks, ensuring we all got great results.

The front of my scarf consists of my shibori dyed silks, cottons and linens, along with some devoré satins and velvets I picked up at The Fiber Studio.   The backside is merino top and several silk hankies I also picked up at The Fiber Studio.

I love the incredible textures you get in nuno felting!

I can’t decide which side I like better.  The silk hankies give such a beautiful ethereal effect.

Another great felting success!
