241  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Pods and Pollen Needle Felted Necklace on: July 19, 2012 08:19:16 AM


I have been very busy putting together some new classes. I started out working on a needle felted earrings class and ended up taking the earring ideas and putting together this necklace prototype. There were numerous different challenges, but probably the most difficult was sewing all the pods and pollen together! I'm more or less pleased, but I may end up adding a couple small bits to fill in some gaps.

Hope everyone is staying cool! It has been so hot here that I have not been able to be as productive as I would like. I'd work for a while and then have to retreat from my craft room to some place cooler. Fortunately we had rain yesterday and again today which has brought down the temperatures to a far more tolerable level.

Merino Fiber, Beads, needle and thread and a whole lot of TIME!!

Delighted that you're pleased Missingwillow!!!  Cheesy  Cheesy

I had a lot of fun making your Beatrice as a twig sheep! She looks super in cubbyhole #18!! What a nice collection you're getting!!

Her bell seems to have gotten lower during the trip - you can pull on the ends of the garland to raise the bell if you like! I didn't secure the garland in case you ever wanted to remove it for some reason.


I enjoyed doing the swap!! Jack LOVES his new pouch!! It holds everything that he likes to carry with him and makes it SO much easier to find everything!! It couldn't have been more perfect for him!!

I'm enjoying the soaps!! SOOO nice!!! =^..^=

My swap was will MissingWillow and I am just SO DELIGHTED!!
I told her how my husband is in a wheelchair and he has all this stuff that he carts around with him. He's been using this old funky cosmetic travel case that is about a zillion years old and it just doesn't work well. I gave MissingWillow a few pointers on what would be useful for him and she worked MAGIC!!!



I had mentioned that Jack is a vet and a confederate at heart. She looked for confederate fabric, but wasn't able to find any - NO problem! Jack is just tickled pink!!



It's so beautifully made and has all these wonderful pockets to make finding his stuff so much easier!! She also included pens and a note pad AND some confederate beer cap magnets AND a super lovely tin box which will now be his pill box!!

BUT WAIT!! THERE'S MORE!!! (gosh I am so spoiled!!)....

MissingWillow also included the most heavenly handmade and totally fragrant soaps!!



They're so pretty (a flower, a sheep (too kewl) and a leaf) I almost hate to even use them (almost)!!
AND she included a lovely note telling me about the search for confederate fabric and getting design help from her husband (and I didn't include any note in the package I sent her - I'm so bad about such things)!!

I am just tickled!! This was a super swap!!!

THANK YOU MISSINGWILLOW!!!!

Lovely!! A very successful first project!!

Don't be intimidated by needle felting!! As crafts go it is one of the easiest to be successful and it is so very versatile!! I hope you will be doing more!! =^..^=
