Scrapping with felt & fibres

Last month K a very good friend of mine turned 40 and as part of her present, her sister organised all her friends to make a scrapbook page for her, celebrating her life and the lovely person she is. I’ve never totally got into scrapbooking, being, as the evidence suggests, more of a fibre than a paper girl, so I decided to do a page with some felting and embroidery. Now K is an accomplished embroiderer, C&G and all that gorgeous stuff, so I was a bit mad I’m sure!

It turned out ok for someone with no training I think! The text is printed on cotton voile, it’s sheer but I’d love to find something even sheerer for stuff like this, the felt was hand felted and dyed with KoolAid, the embroidery is hand and free machine.
