These needlefelt (by hand) patches were made from scraps. I did a large piece, about 12in x 12 in. using wool plaid as the backing. I placed strips of dyed silk over the backing and needled it down. Then I started adding wisps of colored wook, then left over cut pieces of tapestry wool (a friend saves me her clippings). I used the rotary cutter and mat to cut the diamond shapes. Now, I have several ideas for what to do next with these lovely patches so watch this space….
