Cabbage, part 1

First of the workshops for TRAC members was a day of felt making with Gillian Chapman.  Other members focused on felting a piece of art, but I decided to use the time to make some flat felt to turn into a cabbage.  You can see some of the art works on the TRAC Facebook page.  I thought about whether to make the piece in 3D or whether to make cabbage leaves and join them together, but this is for a piece of embroidery so I decided to use fabric manipulation techniques to achieve what I wanted.  Here you can see my inspiration and the result.  There is more work to do, so watch this space.
