Goodness I haven't been here for ages!
Moy Mackay Gallery Home - Moy Mackay Gallery (oh well this way works until I've got my bearings again).
So I decided to have a go and being the sort of person who wants to achieve an end by the quickest route I laid out my fleece (merino tops) onto a very cheap jcloth type dish cloth. (I will explain in a bit). As roses are a favourite of mine pink roses it is. The lighter bits are silk tops which give it a bit of a lift and seem to separate nicely giving some texture. Moy lays out her colours on a base of cream fleece first but I didn't.
The next step was to put another cloth on top. Before I did this I gave the cloth a quick spray of temporary fabric adhesive to help hold things in place. After this I tacked it all around the edges and across the middle with very large stitches.
Well it sort of worked but parts had to be needle felted down as I had a few leaves hanging precariously from it (more experimentation in the wash department needed perhaps). But that's ok it's quite nice to do with my flat brush and gadget. The needle felting tool only has 4 and a bit needles now instead of 5.
To flatten it out a bit I pressed it under a damp cloth. Moy irons iron-on interfacing on the back of hers to stabilise it for machining but mine seemed to be quite thick as it was so I left it.
