Love That Pillow Cover- Part One

Purple batt with needle-felted 'love'.
 


Can't get enough love!
 


Test layout...facing up.
 


'Real' layout...with design face-down on resist and pencil-roving grids.
 


As those of you who are regular readers well know...

...I'm not much of a blues/purples kind of gal. :)

And when I work in these colors...

...I'm always trying to put myself in the mind of someone who is!

This time, I decided to make a love pillow...

...and make it kind of feminine.

I wrote the word 'love' in pencil roving on a couple of wool batts...

...cutting them into equal rectangles, afterward.

I made a pre-felt heart...

...and detailed it with a little pencil roving, too.

Since I like to work 'upside-down'...

...I laid my pieces face down, followed by the pencil roving...

...and ultimately, the pale blue batts that you'll get to see next time.

Happy Halloween, everyone!!!

When are you coming to the US for a visit so we can make felt together?!?!
