I chose light blue wool roving and included some light blue Angelina fibers to make the universe sparkle. The base I used was a hand dyed 100% wool fabric.
I felted the wool roving and Angelina in a circular motion trying to make it look like a spinning universe.
Then I added two angels holding a heart. I used variegated pinks wool for the angels dresses and white wool yarn for their wings.
Then I added the words "Friendship Tapestry" that I created on my computer and printed off on Printed Treasure cotton sheets. The above photo is of the beginning of trying to create faces for my angels. The idea for the angel faces came from Sara Lechnes in Austria website. I have never drew a face ever. Usually, I recruit my DH for art work but he was working and so I decided to give them a try myself. I used watercolor pencils on "Printed Treasures" cotton fabric sheets. I used the edges of the fabric sheet which I used to created the words "Friendship Tapestry". The photo on the far left was my first attempt. The second and thirds ones I decided to use. Where the water color pencils would not smudge I sprayed them with Blair Very Low Odor Matte spray fix and let them dry.
Then I button hole stitched them on with Kreinik Metallic very fine braid. If I was to do them over I would of wool felted some hair and then added the faces. I will try that next time.
Because this wool felted post card will be part of the Friendship Tapestry I added the above information requested by Rags in Iceland and this is Rag's English Blog. This is Rags Icelandic Blog.
I finished the edges of the post card with 100% wool yarn by Bernat called Iris Nouveau and stitched it down with DMC Pearlescent Effects made in France. This gave the edges some sparkle too. According to the Friendship Tapestry Project there has been 263 post cards from 24 different countries that have been added to this "World of Friendship" Tapestry. To read more about this wonderful project please go to "Friendship Tapestry" website. I am very please to be able to add my Wool Felted "Angels and Heart Friendship Post Card" to this lovely International Friendship Tapestry. There is detailed photos of all 263 4 X 6 inches post cards under "The Pieces" on the website. Rags my angels will be winging their way to you soon.
