Thank you all! I can't wait to get more roving and practice more! Any ideas on dyeing her red even though she's finished?

Yesterday we had a snow day and after messing up three rows I went on a crochet hiatus. I had bought some tan and brown wool roving intending to make dreadlocks for myself but never got around to it and after seeing a needle felted squid knitting a squid on pintrest I decided it was time to give sculpting a try! I was so in love with the squid, but I've been on an octopus kick lately so Olivia the octopus crocheting octopus was born! This is my first needle sculpting project ever. Her little crochet hook was made from a tooth pick and I mrico crocheted her tiny pink octopus with embroidery floss. I ended up running out of roving so I wired her tentacles for lack of having any more to keep their shapes. Im so proud of her! But I would like to dye her red. I couldn't find anything about dyeing already made and felted projects so if anyone has done so please let me know how to! Anywho, here she be!

If they still have "stuff" on them I put them on a pickle Bucket of water and let it rot off for a few weeks or however long it takes. Then rinse them off, dunk the in a mix of a cape full of bleach mixed with about 4 cups of water to for a few minutes and then let th dry and glue back any teeth that fell out or the like. It's pretty easy, just sometimes takes a while.

It's been such a long time since I've posted anything! Lately I've put crocheting aside and concentrated on doll making.
This rad lil guy's head is a real coyote skull a taxidermist friend gave me. I wired the skull on through the hole in the back (where the brain stem connects to the spine) and made him a wire spine for poseability  and added strength. His cloacal was made from a shiny red shirt I found at a thrift store. I'm pretty proud of him Smiley and I have quite a few dolls planned since after I finished him he had such personality it was kinda like giving life to a lost soul....so my hunt for poor road killed animals that would be long forgotten began this summer, so  expect some more neat dollies my friends Wink

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Painting faux leather/pvc leggings on: May 12, 2014 04:08:35 PM
I have a pair of faux leather/pvc stretchy type leggings that I want to paint a design on in white (they are black) has anyone done this? I've been searching and the best suggested paint I can find is rustolium vinyl and leather fabric paint. Will it crack or scratch off? Also I'd really like actual paint brush paint since my design is detailed

Rockabilly is a stle influenced by the 40's, 50's, and early 60's. Google rockabilly and psychobilly style
