2  Shibori style dyed felt scarves in Dyeing: Completed Projects by Belladune on: June 11, 2016 03:33:42 AM


So, I use the term shibori loosely since I don't know if these are exactly folded with proper shibori techniques... But they are folded and then dyed, and then I finish the felting.  I start with pre felt fabric, often merino silk blend.

Here they are folded and stitched or tied in place:


And here are the finished scarves!


Thanks for looking!

3  Simple wet felted scarves in Felting: Completed Projects by Belladune on: June 11, 2016 03:24:45 AM
These things are so easy to whip up!  And it's almost like cheating, since all I do is spread out a multi coloured top, muss up the one side a bit, just to give them some firmness, and felt away!



thanks for having a look!

4  Memory Pillows in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Belladune on: June 11, 2016 03:13:54 AM
My Grandpa passed away 3 years ago in April.  Cry  My Grandma had given us each a shirt of his to do as we wished with, and for 3 years mine hung in the closest, among my husbands shirts.  Just hiding, not being  seen.... I had seen those memory pillows and quilts and thought it would be much nicer to have his shirt out on display, where I could see it everyday.  My sister came up to visit me this April, and she brought her shirt with her, and we made ourselves the pillows.
Together:

(I sat in this chair after I took the pictures, and wept a little... It was like sitting on his lap again, at least in my mind...)

This one is mine.  The back is actually well faded... Grandpa loved to fish, so I think he maybe spent a lot of time in his boat in this one.


This one is my sisters (she sewed it herself! and she's not even crafty! lol I talked her through it though Smiley )



Anyway, sorry for the sappy story... I just hope someone who hasn't seen this concept yet does, and thinks it's a great idea Smiley  I love my Grandpa Pillow.

5  So much yarn.. in Spinning: Completed Projects by Belladune on: June 11, 2016 03:02:22 AM
It's like, 4 am, and I can't sleep thanks to choosing the wrong cold meds before bed... So, what better thing to do than cruise craftster, and post something?  I can't believe it's been what feels like forever since I've posted...

Okay, so first, this gorgeous oatmeal BFL, I haven't actually measured it out, but I know it's got to be over 600yards, because it was 4 bobbins worth of singles. maybe a light sport weight?


This is a 50/50 blend of merino and baby llama! I took a series of progress pics, because I was really enjoying the process of this spin...




That's it for now. There's more, but I guess they've not been loaded onto my computer...

Thanks for looking!

6  Wood Stove with tile hearth in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Belladune on: January 01, 2016 04:31:59 PM
In the fall, before the snow flew, my husband and I embarked on our first ever tiling project.  He's a Plumbing and Heating Journeyman, so the putting in of the wood stove was old hat, but not the tiling!
He did the majority of the work; the parts with the tile saw, and glue; I did the grouting.  The grouting was a nightmare!  The grout was old stock, and actually discontinued, so when I ran out after 3/4 of the tile had been grouted I died a little inside.... Thankfully there was a similar product by the same company in the color, and given I was only the left facing part unfinished, it didn't really matter, since you always get some difference wall to wall anyway.  I'm glad you can't even tell.

These circle tiles, while on sheets, were terrible to grout. some of the grout stuck to some of the tile, it sank a lot when it dried, so nothing is flush. It's a good thing we have a good vacuum.


The wall tile was much easier to grout. Washed right off. Aside from the previously mentioned curveball, it went well!


Here's the finished pic, before the first fire..


And one with a fire a blazing!


It's really nice to have, considering we are sometimes without power, and therefore without heat. We've been using it anyway, since wood fires at christmas and new years are cozy Smiley

Thanks for looking!

ha! the flipped pics look super stretched to me!  I have no idea why it did that!  Th bottom picture is the right proportions...

7  Christmas ornaments in Felting: Completed Projects by Belladune on: December 02, 2015 04:52:56 PM
Here are just a couple I've done so far.  I'm working on a few more too.  A tree and a tree in the snow and a reindeer (that looks like a bear right now...)  I've sewn ribbons on the back for hanging too!

8  Reversible wet felted wall hanging - 5-4-3-2-1 in Felting: Completed Projects by Belladune on: October 26, 2015 09:15:07 PM
This is my most recent piece of art!  Wet felted with resists to create the almost-holes, then machine stitched to add texture.  I created it with it being reversible in mind, and i'm so happy with how it turned out.  It's going to a Gala for a fundraiser for a cause near and dear to me.  I hope it fetches a good sum for them!



I entitled the price 5-4-3-2-1, because each of those numbers is represented in this piece. 3 groupings of 5 on the dark side (although one is cut off... in hind site I should have moved all the resists down an inch or so)  3 groupings of 4 on the blue side, 2 sides making 1 beautiful whole.

The individual pics of each, hopefully so you can see it better...


And lastly, a few gratuitous macro-esque shots (off colour, due to lighting and angle... but pretty in their own right!)
 


Thanks for looking!

Day's 5&6!
Filled all the bobbins, and plied up one pair!





Today's the last day, and I've already managed to ply all four of the small pink bobbins, leaving me with the naturally coloured one, and the big pink one (not pictured in this reply...) which will be navajo plied.
