This felt belt has been created from navy blue felt 'leaf' shapes which overlap slightly. Each has been embroidered with green thread to form 'veins.' The central motif has been created on a circle of navy blue felt. A number of flowers have been created from circles in multi coloured felts. Each has been stitched for form three-dimensional petals using green thread. A hook and bar fasten the belt.
Norma created the belt from recycled felt hats. She used her father's saddler's punches to make the flower shapes.
