Felting as surface embellishment

Laces & embroidery come to our mind when we think of surface embellishments. The latest one catching up fast is felting with wool as a surface embellishment technique. You can needle felt with wool on practically most fabrics, be it your jeans, jacket, cotton T-shirts, wool sweaters or your jute bags too. 
Draw a motif and start felting with the needle. You will finish it in no time. Interestingly, it is durable to wash, as wool felts more with washing!
A group of budding Knitwear designers from NIFT Chennai visited the studio, tried their hand at felting, and learnt the basics. Addition of a needle of a different kind to their creative kitty!
