here’s the after. The tucked sample I showed you before on the left, its sibling on the right. Both washed on the ‘whites, eco’ setting on my washing machine, which I think is 60C, and both well felted. The button resists I added to both worked well, the string resist I added to the one on the left doesn’t seem to have made any difference. Perhaps I should have pulled it tight? – time for another experiment.
While I was at it I added an embroidered piece to the washing machine.
This was inspired by the Ai Wei Wei work shown below: kantha stitched on wool felt with added buttons. This has shrunk so well the buttons have snuggled up together. Unfortunately some of the felt has attached itself to the top surface, but if I had more patience I could get it off.
