That's what I have been doing all week, making felted monsters!
I have lived in the Netherlands for more than 3 years and I have a long way to go before I am a fluent speaker. Some Dutch words just don't stay in
my head, and other I can't forget.
MONSTER is unforgettable, it's translation is simply - sample.
It's far more dramatic a word to me than samples, far more exciting, and definitely the right word in this case, for my monstrous felted monsters.
I have been incorporated threads fibres and fabrics, ranging from silk to linen into small felt monsters . Some are from my dying and some yarns from my extensive knitting yarn stash. I have been trying out the impact of lying the fibres in different direction to find it really makes a massive different. To both the final size of the felt monster and to the threads and fabric , which are either pulled in two directions or just one. Both directions gives a more compact and effective monster.
Thread on the surface are my favorite effect. You can see here the way the silk threads concertina up , the wool sinks into the felt and becomes blurry and the cotton thread looks great like waves on the sea.
So now having finished testing, there nothing for it I have to make a final sunset piece how scary!
