Remnant. I like this word. I like the sound and I like the meaning. A remnant is defined as a small part that is left over after the majority has been used. I have lots of remnants I have bought as bargains but most of my remnants are true left overs.
I thought perhaps they could be become part of another felt piece. Maybe combining then with some natural white Shetland would be an interesting experiment.
I choose a selection of remnants , looking here a bit like tombstones.
After drying the piece needed to be stitched.
A choose to use the same collection of stitches I had used in my felt squares , but have allowed the stitching to escape from the constraints of the remnants and invade the Shetland background.
This is not completely finished yet , but I am pleased with the effect. Using remnants really appeals to me , making something out of the left overs instead of throwing them away .
