The Beauty's In The Details

I finally got all of my new nuno felt pillows listed on My Etsy Site . The new pieces are nuno felt on the front and recycled knitting on the reverse. I've used details such as unique yarns to join the two sides and cutting fringe into the backings. I want my pillows to be as much soft sculpture as cozy accents for a sofa, chair or bed. The pictures below offer you a glimpse of these details that make each one, not just a pillow, but a one of a kind art piece. You can see them in their entirety by clicking on the link below, and under the individual detail images.

Don't they look yummy all stacked together?

August Nuno Felt Workshop

We spent a productive two days learning and having fun making nuno felt. Other exciting felt processes that were explored included making pieces of pre-felt and silk paper to add to our designs, plus embelished felt ropes and beads.

Love those beautiful colors!

Nuno Felt pillows are the best!
