Because I am quite mean with my supplies, or perhaps I just believe in saving money, I like to use up every scrap and if you quilt, you will know how many batting scraps that are not much use it generates! I don't throw these out and use them for stuffing toys and also, for needle felting. Of course they are not a particularly interesting colour for using for needle felting, but they felt extremely well.
I have covered this topic before and you can find a tutorial here.
I have had some landscape ideas in my mind for a while and of course hand dyed felt and prefelts are available, but it is so easy to dye batting (cotton only) and the colours are glorious!
So yesterday I did a huge batch of scraps.
Here is an example of a batting landscape
I will also show you a sample handbag I put together for a workshop I intend to teach later in the year. I will post the step by steps later this week. I took lots because I will need them for the workshop.
