So I had this idea.
|One set of my new cardboard cutouts.|
Actually, lately, I've had lots and lots of ideas. Which I am very grateful for. Because nothing makes me feel more alive than when my creative juices are a-flowing.
As you know, I've been working on felted scarves. Lots of felted scarves - cobweb scarves, nuno scarves, pre-felted scarves. In working with the pre-felts, I had this idea to make "word scarves." Cutting out letters from prefelt and adding it to the scarves.
|My favorite word. The letters are about 3 inches tall, perfect size to show up well on a scarf.|
So I ordered four different fonts and sizes of cardboard alphabets. Last night, I cut out bunches of words and shapes. In several different colors.
|These symbols will be great in an abstract design.|
Using the prefelts made everything easy to cut out.
It'll also make it easy to felt.
I've seen several examples of abstract inspired scarves that I just think are amazing.

Adding words will be my twist on that. Sound cool? I can just see a scarf featuring a favorite quote or poem. Maybe mixed with flowers or paisleys or spirals or...
That's my kind of art.
Once the weather cools down a bit, I'll get some scarves made and post the results. Fingers crossed.
