Brightly-colored felted images, enchanting bracelets or stylish vessels – within this product range, felt artists like to combine feltmaking with decorative embroidery. The interdisciplinary artist Elena Kuki, for instance, uses hand and machine embroidery mainly as an ornament in accessories or clothing. Margot Krug is an expert on felted structural images. Many of her expressive images are embroidered with colorful beads. Also, in her instructions – a wonderful upcycling project – the individually formed vessel made from wool remnants is rendered even more perfect by decorative elements such as beads, sequins or embroideries.
