I love making felt rings and I have amassed quite a collection in many different colours. While working on another project coming up next week, I decided to give a try with creating an ombre effect with a scrap strip of felt I used for my coffee cup collar.
1 - By putting the strip on its side in the dye, I just let the colour begin to seep up the felt.
2 - when dry there was a slight ombre effect - maybe not quite the one I expected but it was there
3 - by cutting a strip approximately 1 inch by 5 inches and folded in half, I began to create my flower form for the ring. You can find more details on technique HERE.
4 - all stitched up, this version of the ring is subtle but pretty and soft
ps. the dye I used is cherry kool-aid - stay tuned next week for full details on using this as dye.
There is nothing like a little flower power in the middle of the summer ... don't you think?
