New work- home decor felt/silk flower series

These are in a series of pillows I made called my 'Felt/Silk Flower Line.' The flower are made from a collage of alpaca felt scraps and pieces of hand dyed silk fabric. The silk fabric was left over from my time at Penland School of Craft, where we studied natural dyes. The natural dyes really seems to work with the natural palette of the alpaca felt. 

These are still considered eco-friendly, all of the fabric is from natural sources, the felt is being recycled verse being thrown out, and the filling is from pillows obtained from thrift stores.
More to come
