Thank you!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Punches arrived and I'm very pleased!! Currently I'm only interested in using 3 of the shapes that are in the set. Some of the punches are sharper than others. I think I will need to learn how to sharpen them as well. Certainly makes cutting the disk shapes a lot faster!! I am making my own felt cloth so that the colors match perfectly and it's all 100% Merino in use!
Working on another but it will take a while before I can complete it. =^..^=

THANKS!!!

That's certainly made my day!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I have found a set of punches for leather work that were decently priced. Hope to be giving them a try tomorrow!! =^..^=

Thank you!!!! It was a very interesting project and I have more ideas that I want to try within the same overall concept.

I'm considering investing in a punch for the disks. There's enough labor in them just in creating them and then wet felting them prior to trimming to correct size. =^..^=

I've been meaning for well over a year to work on this idea. Will probably make up another prototype to refine construction and possibilities before putting it together as a class. =^..^=

THANKS!!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I'm a big fan of dragons!! My husband used to collect them and I made him a few over the years!! I am going to try doing another of these. I know I'll do it differently, but I have no idea how just yet! =^..^=

This was made with the second 3D printed mold that I had made up. It has some "issues" in terms of construction, but still pretty neat!! =^..^=

Thanks!!  Cheesy Cheesy

The links are completely made of fiber which has been needle felted together really well so it won't rub off. It might get a big fuzzier with wear.

I had another mold created at the same time. I'm working on getting a sample of that finished. Yesterday was shopping day so I just did a shorter resist wet felting experiment before we did our errands. After I feed the cats, I can get back to work! =^..^=

No - the bracelet was not 3D printed! A friend and I designed the mold for the bracelet links and THAT was 3D printed!! Smiley

For the trial run using the mold, I didn't do anything fancy. For future bracelets, I will want to try to accurately calculate how much fiber per use of the mold is ideal. This time I just guessed so there's variation in thickness and density.
