'Pierced' Marine Tote- Part 1 of 3

Stitching with wool yarn...


                                          ...on a piece of commercial pre-felt.



                                                    Preparing a tote resist... 



                                                      ...with a taped-on 'flange'.


                                      

                                                      A close-up of the stitching.


        
  
                               Trimming the embellished pre-felt to the shape of the resist.

         

                                        Adding layers of wool roving and wetting it out...


         

                           ...then flipping the project to side two for more embellishment.


           

                                                               Wetting out side two...


          

                                         ...and adding a small piece of painter's plastic...

                                                  ...in preparation for the next layer.


         

                                            Next time: the tote bottom is embellished...

                                                        ...and felting is begun!
