I made this a few weeks ago, isn’t it nice? It’s made from merino wool using the wet felting technique. I used instructions from ‘Wet Felting: How to Make 3D Felt Vessels Using Flat Resists’ from Rosiepink Textile Arts. I won (yes!) this ebook in a giveaway and I think it’s excellent. I had no trouble with the instructions at all, they are well written and it is filled with colourful photographs! This tutorial actually made two pots in one go, but I finished them off with a friend so I gave one to her :)
Thank you for looking!
These were a commission from the sister of the person for whom I made the first cats. These took me a long time but I’m happy with the result. They look a bit hairy in the photograph but that is because they enlarged by quite a bit in the photograph. Really they are only 2-3 inches long.
Today there has been lots of sunshine here. My brother and I made another batch of elderflower cordial, because the first batch was so good!
My picture is finished! Actually, I finished it about a week ago but I have only just put the photos on my laptop. I started it over two months ago, outside in the sunshine. Since my other post about it I started embroidering the grass by hand at the top, but I soon got tired of it and it was redundant for a while. Then I decided to finish it using my sewing machine. I used a zig-zag stitch and I threaded my machine with the same embroidery thread so that it looked the same. I’m not sure if the zig-zag looks as good as the bit that I hand stitched, but it’s worth it because otherwise I wouldn’t have got it finished!
Thank you for taking a look :-)
It’s Father’s day today (UK) this is my card to dad (made last night from about 10pm to 11pm!) I bought him some chocolates and my brother made him a really cool card and gave him a sudoku book.
This is my new shelf that dad made for me, finished last Thursday. Thank you Dad :).
Look how I tidied it all nicely, it won’t stay like that for long!
I made this picture yesterday. I used white Merino tops for the background, dark grey Merino for the tree trunk and hand dyed Blue Faced Leicester fleece for the leaves/blossom that I bought yesterday at Focus on Felt studio in Hardraw.
I made this for a friends birthday, and now I have given it to her I can share it with you! It was crocheted on a 6mm hook so it’s quite chunky, which is good because it will protect the phone more and it was quite quick to crochet!
Last night dad was felting and I couldn’t resist joining in! It’s a vase of flowers on a window sill, could you tell?
Today we had a stay-at-home day and I did some felting in the sunshine!
These are felt versions of my friend’s cats, Nancy and Jasper Francis! On the photos they look a bit hairy but that’s because they are really only about 2″ long. I was very pleased with these :)
Thanks for looking
Yesterday I shared a stall with a friend at the coffee morning and craft fair at Carleton village hall.
