Touchy, feely velvet – small stone 14

Fingers feel the velvet,
Nap smooth in one direction,
Rubs rough the other way.
Metallic thread, edgy,
Surrounding silky sheers.
Soft felt flaps inside,
Enfolding scratchy needles.

I had a creative day with a friend yesterday and made these velvet needle cases. Making them with my eyes open I concentrated on colours, shape and sparkle. Experiencing the same fabrics today with my eyes closed is quite different. Good to notice how things feel on my skin and under my fingers. The words “textile” and “texture” are closely related after all….
