My felt class went on a field trip to learn Nuno felting from a local artist named Tylar Merrill. It was great and I learned oodles. She shows her work in downtown Eugene at Eco-Sleep Solutions, and is worth stopping by to check out. This workshop was one of the many highlights of my school term. We decided to flood her mail box with felt thank you's. Mine is pictured here with crocheted flowers and leaves which I needle felted into the hardened felt card. I needled on some yarn to look vine-like and stitched on Thai paper with my message, and as address labels. I hope that the postal workers enjoyed it as much as the final recipient.
