Experimenting with Felt


Ever wonder what happens if you take a base of cotton batik or silk fabric, layer a piece of Kunin felt on top, free-motion machine stitch through both layers with various threads, then zap the stitched piece with a heat gun? The Kunin felt melts away leaving a network of threads, revealing the fabric underneath. For extra fun, we sprinkled a bit of embossing powder in selected areas and heated it again, then added small dabs of metallic paste wax.
