Silk Print and Selvedge Table Runner- Part 2 of 2

Mid-way through felting...
    

...the project is flipped to the fabric side...

...and work continues.


                                                   The (very plain) back side.

                                  

                                        Remember that all of the embellishments...



                                     ...were trapped between the silk and the wool.                                  


     
                         This necessitated their being either 3-D or brightly colored...



                                              ...so that they remained visible...

                                            ...(but as 'through a glass, darkly').                                     
                            
                                                     
                               
                                                 Even the 'fabric only' sections...

                                  

                                    ...became satisfyingly textural during felting. :)



                                               The completed table runner...



                                                 ...in all of its embellished glory!
