Sasha is my very first needle felted face. She was created on cotton batting with black felt and wool roving, then I used straight and seed stitches to create shading and emphasis detailing.
Lauren was my second embellished face. This piece was created from a b/w photo of my daughter at age 13. Unfortunately she doesnt like it but it is one of my altime favourites.
Her face was created on wool batting with black/beige felt, assorted wools- roving and knitting yarns. Her eyes and features are highlighted by stitching with DMC embroidery threads, using seed andstraight stitches.
