Embellished Felted Vessel

I liked the comment from the last post to embellish with one special bead or button. I had this brass and Mother of Pearl button in my stash and like it on this vessel. "Less is more" comes to mind.

I think it made a perfectly elegant statement.

These are gorgeous...I love working with fibers..... so soft.....Not sure if you saw the r eply on my blog or not in regards to the bowl I made.....

I took a class a few years ago and was told you can use fine gauge wire// some use hemp...I used clothesline rope.. coiled method and I sew them together and shape however you wish. some people in the class actually wanted to hand stitch their items .....you can add in yarns fibers ect.... I did knots on the handles and then I used buttons to embellish.....

I do not have that here at home with me....It is at my studio and I will be going there on Thursday so I will get close up photos for you then..............

Blessings~

Absolutely Fabulous Barbara! Love it. If it ends up in your Etsy store, don't be surprised to find me there scooping it up! Hmmm, I wonder if you could again deliver it in person, like my Jester's Hat (which I loooove). :)
