My latest work is embellishing my quilt guild apron.  I had trouble keeping it taut in the hoop, despite my best efforts.  It’s polyester and I usually work in cotton. I don’t know if that matters.  The bottom part puckered a bit, but I still like it.

My latest was done on thick black wool felt. I’ve never worked with that before, but it worked pretty well.  It was then appliqué onto a tote bag.

Looks great I like embroidering on felt I have used it to make bookmarks in the past

Have you done hand or machine embroidery on felt @Celia ?
