1  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Wet felted teapot to play with on: February 09, 2009 01:02:55 PM
Hi all,
I wanted to share with you my latest wet felting project: A teapot for my daughters.
I have used a balloon, covered it up with wool, used some sewing thread to keep it all to the balloon, placed another 2 layers of wool upon that and started to make everything wet.  Next time I'll use the flat resist method, because I think it's maybee easier to make it then. Now I have sewn the handle on, the big dot at the lid and the ropes at the edges of the lid. The heart - thread is needle felted on to it.

What do you think of it??





The little teabags are sewn from industrial felt.

Hi everyone,

I love www.etsy.com very much. But is it also a good place to sell my wet-felted stuff? Does anyone find my stuff there? What should I keep in mind?

I am doubting between my own website or etsyshop. What to do?

Hope someone can help.

I have made a  nunofelted scarf with roses as design. I just think next time I should make more `rose/leaves lines`

4  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / BLUB, I'm a little fish.... wet felted on: August 19, 2008 01:37:04 AM
Hi All,

I've had two days of great felting. Ideas kept coming up! First I made the orange fish, the aqua fish, a rainbowfish and after that 2 Little rainbowfishes and last but not least the punk fish.

I used the flat resist method and made an incision which I sewed after stuffed the felt with wool. Look for yourself. Any comment or questions are welcome!

5  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / nunofeltd scarf and necklace in "ton -sur ton" on: July 24, 2008 09:43:06 AM
Hi, I've been making a nunofelted scarf. I always wanted to make a scarf with colours that are "ton- sur- ton". Now I had the time! Even so much time I made a necklace in the same colours, so it would suit .
See for yourself! I am now doubting if I am going to keep it myself,give it away or sell it at a flee/art market in September

6  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Wet-felted baby-dress with a pair of "socks" on: July 19, 2008 11:19:02 AM
I've made, for the first time, a baby dress. I used the felting technique: with a flat resist. I took an of cotton made little dress, made it 1/3 bigger and wrapped all the fibers around it.  I also used the prefelt technique: through cuttings out of prefelt and laying them on the wool before felting. (Flowers, butterflies)
I am going to send it to my friend in Sweden who has become a baby -girl. Hope she'll love it!
