Today I finally got around to using scrim as foundation for a needle felted piece and this square was the result.
The white areas visible in some areas is the result of punching from the 'wrong side':

When punching on the reverse side, there's a tendency to cause the base mesh to loop up through the felt,much the same way that incorrect tension on a sewing machine can leave 'loops' on the right side of fabric.

After cutting the square from the perpared piece,I then embellished some (silk) thrower's waste across......reminds me of the Stingers sometimes seen in Moreton Bay.
