Recycling Mum's blouse with Nuno felting
Well it was not my favourite colour but it felt nice so it was worth spending some time with it. I actually kept the collar and cut it up into a vest shape for remodelling. I ended up shibori-ing the side tabs and using a textile collage artwork on some old raw silk for the reverse side of the tab. I just love the way nuno shrivels up the fabric.
