"Woven" Silk, Yarn and Pencil-Roving Pillow- Part 1 of 2

Laying out layers of wool...

...from hand-carded art batts...


                                       ...and adding a 'woven' lattice of wool yarn...



                                                  ...thin strips of silk fabric...



                                           ...and pencil roving (in several colors).



                                                 The back side of the project.



                                                     Mid-way through felting...



                                             ...all but the lengths of wool yarn...



                                             ... have fully integrated into the felt...



                                        ...(but I rather like these 'wobbly bits'!) ;)



                                     Next time: a blue suede pillow back is added. :)

That looks good - a really vibrant, tartan-like effect.
