Felted Wool Punkin Man

This wall hanging is made with wool, all of the orange shades hand dyed. The fabrics began life as garments like wool blazers or wool slacks before I got hold of them. I felted them in a hot wash and dyed the necessary colors.

The shapes are hand cut and appliqued on using the perle cotton and the blanket stitch. Then I added fun details like the stick arms and the buttons. The little bird has a french knot eye and handstitched legs. I backed it with another layer of wool and blanket stitched around the edges with some varigated wool yarn.
