I have been reading loads of tutorials lately on textured felted or needle felted projects.
I always found using a good assortment of wool roving, yarns, and fabrics can create interesting texture with out too much difficultly.
So I have put together a picture file of ways you can use fibers/embellishments to create textures on their own. All pieces have been needle felted on a base of wool. All items are my own creations.
|The wool rose, also add texture , especially if you only needle felt the centers.|
|In this one by adding white silk to the edge of a darker shade create depth.|
|'The Reef', shown here previously, but a good example of creating textured movement using|
assorted fibers, yarns and embellishments.
|Probably one of of most most shown pieces, due to the fact it was created using mostly silk fabric.|
NF on a wool base, then machine free stitched.
If I can empress on on thing, don't limit yourself to using just roving, I have found my greatest inspirations by going out side of the box and using what ever I have. Sometimes needles get broke, due to thickness, and that is okay, Nothing is gained by not trying. Give it a shot.
