31  Raccoon in Felting: Completed Projects by Harlan on: August 08, 2015 12:17:35 PM


Not actually something new - I've just been looking through some of the images of creatures I made that sat on my husband's desk. Most of them have been tucked away for safe keeping. I think I may open the box and let the creatures sit on my desk for a while! =^..^=

32  Fiber Mokume Gane - bracelet in Felting: Completed Projects by Harlan on: July 07, 2015 10:17:10 AM


Third in a series of experiments I've been working on over the weekend. Still need to do some more experiments to refine the technique and improve control of results (as much as the concept allows). Rather fun to do, but it takes so long waiting for the bracelets to dry! =^..^=

33  Wet Felted Bead Necklace in Felting: Completed Projects by Harlan on: June 24, 2015 08:56:35 AM


Another wet felted bead experiment - working to put this together as a class. I did a lot of prototype experimentation a while back (some of those experiments were posted here on the forums). Still a bunch of work to be done, but I like this necklace!

Still wish I had access to a lot more interesting beads - there's only Michael's and JoAnn's around here for beads. Selection is okay, but not great. I've bought some beads online, but sometimes it is hard to tell what a bead will really be like until you see it in person.

34  Nuno felted Eyeglass cases in Felting: Completed Projects by Harlan on: June 03, 2015 06:20:46 AM


Not your normal nuno felting!
I didn't have any silk or cotton gauze with which to experiment. I did have some cotton calico so I decided to try it out on that. It worked really nicely and the result was a great padded fabric which is perfect for eyeglass cases - would also be great for smart phones and small cameras!

35  Wet Felted Birdhouses in Felting: Completed Projects by Harlan on: May 27, 2015 12:49:45 PM


Continuing to teach myself wet felting so did some resist felting and made these birdhouses! Pretty neat project all in all. I do have one hung out in the garden and it is holding up to the weather pretty well. Haven't hung up the other examples that I made as I think they would probably be best hung under the eaves and that would require the ladder etc. etc.

36  Wet felted purse in Felting: Completed Projects by Harlan on: May 01, 2015 11:22:37 AM


I'm teaching myself wet felting.

This was resist felted and is all one piece. The felt is inconsistent in thickness which is entirely my own fault. I was anxious to try the idea about the shape of the resist and the final product so I really was not being careful. I also made this on a smaller scale - might be large enough for a child. One thing I learned from doing it a smaller size is that some specific felting I would have liked to do became impossible. I basically was trying to save on the amount of fiber I needed while doing an experiment that I had no idea would even work. I also worked on a smaller scale because I don't really have a place where I can work with large pieces of wet felting. I did manage to expand my work area today so I will sometime set out to make another purse maybe even of a useable size! =^..^=

37  Greenman Brooch in Felting: Completed Projects by Harlan on: March 26, 2015 08:41:27 AM


He's a combination of needle and wet felting. I've been doing quite a few greenman experiments lately. This is my favorite. =^..^=

Trapeze Monkey



Had trouble getting a good photograph. Used a rough bead that was on my table instead of making him his own ball or toy or whatever to hold. I may change that later.

Better body shape, but I think I like the brown color better. May have to try a multi-colored mouse next. =^..^=
