The TAST stitch of week 24 is the buttonhole wheel. I made three felted "stones" and attached them with this stitch.
The purpose was to try to create a marble look. I started with a piece of felt on the left, a piece of fleece on the right and some brick red wool roving.
To create a line I twisted the wool roving and started felting.
I also laid some wool roving on the fabrics, very loosely and felted just a little.
It was not the look I wanted.
I ended with just wool roving and felted it. I cut a small piece of craft felt, put the wool roving on top and felted it. Next I cut the excess wool along the edge of the piece of craft felt.
Next I sewed up a slightly smaller piece of craft felt,
layed the felted piece on top and embroidered a buttonhole wheel to attach it.
It is not like marble but the color is nice.
Because the top layer is larger than the bottom one, you get a nice 3-D look.
The whole pebble as it looks now.
