I am lucky to have a group of very good feltmakers, who are willing to let me “try” my ideas on them. In that way they are helping me to see, if my ideas will work.Last weekend they got the challenge to make animal cushions.I have made several different animal cushions and I find it exiting and funny to work with. I adapt the shape of the cushion to the animal I make: A high narrow shape for the giraf, oval for the seal cushion and round for a tiger.
The motive is made with my aquarelle technique and to be sure that the cushion will be strong it must be wet felted at last.
Here you can see some of the fine results from my students. Some just miss to wet felt the cushions.
