The Felting Lesson: Flying Motion Lines includes a materials list, felting master tips, and six still image galleries with step-by-step instructions, walking you through each step of illustrating a flying fairy with felted motion lines to create fiber movement! This illustration will be part of my next children’s book, The Sun Fairy. The techniques used in this lesson highlight the use of 3D form on a 2D wool base wall hanging – the sun and the fairy pop off the plane of the wool base.
