Piece on Piece

This is a wall hanging that came about yesterday after looking at the pile of felt scraps that I've collected over the past 10+ years. I wanted to make a collage of the small piece. I took white pre-felts, 2 layers, laid it out then began to add the "felts" in random order. I then covered the entire lay out in white silk gauze. This was done to primarily to "hold tight" the felts to the prefelts. It worked! Now I've got to figure out the difficult task of getting it finished and hung. Got ideas?

Tomorrow is FELT UNITED! I am so excited I can hardly stand it. Will you be coming to Marr Haven tomorrow? Noon till 4! See you there!

Beautiful!

I won't be there tomorrow. Life happened and I'm grounded. Wishing you wonderful weather and a great turn out. I'll see you at Fiber Expo in a few weeks.

Your wall hanging looks lovely.
As to ideas of how to hang it..I'd be inclined to stay with the contemporary feel of the piece. Perhaps an insertion tube along the back to encase a metal curtain type rod. This way only the tips of the rod would be visible, and wouldn't detract from the felting itself.

Loved your 'foot made felt' post. What a wonderful idea !

Hope you've had fun today (would have loved to have joined you, alas 10,000 miles was a bit too far to travel !

Love the piece! Velcro on a piece of trim works really great for hanging. You just need the teeth side of the velcro and the wool will grab it.
