Managed to get one sample almost completed before the next session on Monday, 1 November.

I traced the tile design onto a piece of thin iron-on vilene, then ironed that onto the back of a piece of woollen blanket.  The reverse of the blanket had painted Bondaweb ironed onto it.

A square of kunin felt was tacked onto the front of the blanket over the top of the Bondaweb.

Using various machine embroidery threads (non melting variety: ie cotton, rayon, viscose or metallic) I then machine stitched around the outline on the reverse side of the blanket sandwich.

Turned the piece over again to the front and carefully cut away the excess kunin felt.  This was then painted with acrylic paint in a random manner before being zapped with a heat gun (remembering to leave areas with not too much paint so that it melted).   More acrylic paint was then applied to the raised area to integrate it.

Need to get on and make an A3 piece now and might include some synthetic sheer as the top layer prior to melting?
