More embellisher play

I wanted to try making a little landscape by laying down yarns and ‘couching’ them on the embellisher – which I suppose is invisible couching?
Anyway, here is my first attempt at this style – I think I like it – what do you think?

  1. I love it. I’m still getting used to needle felting. I’m using a needle felting foot on my sewing machine to create pieces. May I ask what type of backing you used (or do you!)for this piece? I love the way the layers are still evident. Did you embellish only in a straight line over the yarn?

  2. Thanks Susan – I used a piece of black commercial felt -nothing special, but I wanted black, as I knew there would still be gaps here and there between the rows of yarn. Yes, I just laid them down in rows and ran the embellisher over. I suppose I could add extra hand stitching or embellishment, but I quite like it as it is!
