"Envelope Experiments" (Raw Fleece Pillows)- Part 2 of 3

Laying out the back of envelope number two...

...this time, with a 'flanged' center flap for its opening.


                                  Adding raw locks to the resist surface, tips down...


                    ...and covering the cut side of the locks with a layer of cotton scrim.


                        Wrapping orange wool from the back side around the resist.


                                                   Mid-way through felting...


                                                       ...and during fulling.

                                           (Look at all of that glorious orange!!) ;)


                                 The finished envelope with center 'turtleneck' flap.


                              Trimming the excess felt, prior to stuffing and stitching.


                        Twisty upholstery tacks hold the seam in place during stitching.


                                              Next time: the finished pillow...

                                               ...in all of its textural glory! ;)
