Wooly Crescent Moon Hoopla

I started this over a year ago as a present for my sister. Originally I had been inspired to make something more complex (and completely different), but I decided to use velvet without thinking about how limited my free handing skills are :stuck_out_tongue:

The moon is made from felted mountain goat wool I collected on a hike. I started by felting the wool and then added the embroidery. I’m pleased with the way it turned out and my sister likes it which is the most important thing.

Thank you for the lovely comments!

It’s funny, I didn’t really think about the felting not working with velvet. I had the fabric on the hoop and needle felted it that way. Maybe the tension helped it not turn into a disaster?

The velvet makes this look so lush and like a perfect night sky. It’s lovely.
