Three layers of fabric (fleece, jersey and mohair knit) were sewn together, tied using glass stones and thread and put into the oven for about 50 minutes at 200 C°. Stones and thread were removed after cooling, however the shape stayed. Afterwards I cut the first two layers of the fabric and embroidered the bumps with glass beads.
The fleece fabric didn’t take the heat too well, it faded and got a bit fuzzy. And the binding has to be really tight, so the shape stays solid. Nevertheless I think there is a lot of development potential in this technique. Maybe I’ll use it for a bracelet.
