1  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Re: Falcor - commissioned piece on: February 15, 2013 12:52:04 AM
This is beautiful and incredibly expressive... it so much reminds me of a dear friend who has always had an affinity for dragons and keeps them in various forms.  Even better, she was the one who first introduced me to needle-felting, and has a huge Irish wolfhound named Falcor!  Too strange!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: My First Pattern! Felted Vase on: February 04, 2012 06:52:40 PM
This is almost exactly what I'm looking for!  The only thing I would change is to make the top a straight tube rather than flared.  Did you start from the top or the bottom, or even have a pattern to pass along?  I think I can wing it if I at least know where to start from.  Thanks for sharing this!

This is lovely!  I really enjoy when people come out with simple, beautiful work that speaks for itself.  I'm starting to dabble in chainmaille... how do you get them to stay in the spiral pattern?  Welding, hammering?  I'd love any tips you care to share.  Thank you and happy crafting!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Dragon dress: Garden Part 3 PLUS TUTE! Finally. on: January 22, 2012 02:29:40 AM
Wow, this is beautiful!  I've got some very similar fabric (gorgeous green with a design along the selvedges) just waiting to be made into something special for an upcoming trip!  One thing I might change is to put smocking in the back panel instead of a zipper; hopefully that will also minimize the need for tailoring.  Not normally my thing, but especially for an unlined sundress, I think it might be more comfortable than a zipper.  And a lot easier! :p

Question, though... did you cut the skirt front and back at the same time, or did you have to cut out two separate pieces to get the edge design all the way around?
