All of the green blended batts- blending is fun!
These are two separate pieces, both of which I have previouly entered in 4-H. The flower won grand champ and went to State Fair like the green blanket, the butterfly got an honor. For the flower, I did a hard wet pre-felting, and added detail and futher stiffened it with needle felting. I wet-felted the butterfly's mohair/wool backround and needle felted the rest. I attempted to get it very light and airy, but it didn't quite work out exactly like I wanted. Oh well.
