This next piece was inspired by a particularly brilliant bright blue February sky with fluffy white clouds. I used Photoshop to manipulate the sky and created a repeating pattern which was reminiscent of tie-dye. Using this as my inspiration, I recreated an element of the pattern in felt. This was the first time I had incorporated pattern into the felt and I was unsure how it would look or whether it would work. I built up very thin layers of carded merino wool and took my time over the fulling process. This resulted in the best felt I had yet made, well felted and flat. I was delighted!
