a single strand of yarn

this was a fun needlefelted piece i did as part of a product review article i wrote. the product i was working with and reviewing were the cute little charms; they were perfect embellishments.

wool yarn is great for needlefelting outlines like this. it was really fun to just grab a skein of yellow yarn and start doodling randomly on my piece of black felt....but i challenged myself to create the whole design with one long continuous strand—no cutting.

after my doodle was all punched into place, i added a variety of brightly colored embroidery stitches and then stitched the charms on with a bit of black thread.

this piece just makes me happy, it looks so cheerful to me...so it hangs right near my computer in my studio.

can you tell where the strand starts and stops? click here for the answer!
