"Inspired by May" collaborative banner


collaborative banner, originally uploaded by gramarye.


Our textiles group is making another banner for the next exhibition.
We were all given a section of a painting to interpret in textile and a piece of blanket to either work on or include. This section of the painting is a part of a banksia.
I used my needlefelt machine to work directly onto the blanketing - I had expected it to pull in and reduce the work area, but instead it stretched the wool, so it finished up a bit larger than I started, hopefully it will be able to be cut back to shape without losing the original design.
