Needle-Felted Dyed Wadding

You may recall a while back that I decided to dye some wadding and use it for needle felting in place of expensive (but lovely!) pre-felts. The wadding has been out of the dye for a while now and today I started felting bits of wool fibres, acrylic felt, yarn, organza and even painted baby wipes to it. It works just as well as pre-felt and is quite a bit more robust. This is just an experiment, I'll see how it goes before dyeing some other pieces of wadding in a more considered way. Below you can see the wadding at the beginning with only a little wool fibre added - it's already quite colourful.
