Wool Applique Soft Sculpture

Wool Applique
 I've always loved the hand blown glass perfume bottles especially those by Richard Clements which I collect. After browsing through all the beautiful glass objects on Pinterest I thought why can't  I make something in a soft sculpture that would be my interpretation of the magical perfume bottles.
I'm really taken by the Felted wool, wool felts, beads and gorgeous sequins at the moment so I sat down and drew a few ideas. Initially I drew a set of three but more ideas for all sorts of object started to stir (not to mention all the colour choices) so I began at one.
What I love about this kind of embroidery is that you are free to choose colours, threads, stitches and shapes with no pattern restraints. I call them my happenings! Tell me what you think. I'd enjoy hearing from you.


  1. What a lovely, unique creation! Great idea!


  2. More of this style of embroidery to come - I'm hooked
