32  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / my floating peace cranes on: July 05, 2006 06:22:55 AM
Didn't everyone make origami cranes in elementary school? I had to look up instructions online at first, but I was surprised at how much I actually remembered once I got going! I had a lot of fun making these; they were such a quick and easy way to brighten up my kitchen. Standing at the sink washing dishes is a little less mundane with them flying around above me.

Yes, I was.  Smiley

The strap was the first piece, and it goes all the way around the sides and the bottom of the bag, like one big circle - the rest of the bag was then felted onto the strap, if that makes sense.

Fiberfest at Lake Farmpark in Kirkland. It's already past (took place June 17+18), but it might go on next year, too? I'm not sure if it's annual or not.

Thank you.

I guess I've had a hard time judging this bag because I've never even seen or felt (ha, ha) a needle felted bag before - so I don't know what to compare it to? I'm having a hard time finding any online to look at, too.

Knitted then felted bags  - sure, but strictly needle felted - not so common, apparently.

It is quite thick and sturdy, though. I needle felted, then wet felted, then needle felted it nearly to death again. I think I'll use it for a while and see how it holds up.

Hah! I can't believe there is mention of Wadsworth here. I grew up in Wadsworth, moved to Cincinnati for 5 years, and now I'm back in the area again - we've settled in Kent. I am so excited to find local crafty people! Now I have to go google the art expo and find out what it's all about.

Does anyone know of any local yarn shops that carry wool roving (for spinning, felting, etc)? I am impatient and when I get the urge I hate having to wait for it to ship from who-knows-where. Smiley

Hi all! I'm new. I went to Fiberfest up at Lake Farmpark here in Ohio a few weeks ago, and I was inspired to try needle felting!

Here is my very first creation - a funky felted bag. It's kinda rough looking, but I think I like it.


The back side (blue) is a little chunky. Next time I'll be sure to spread the layers of roving out thinner. But overall, for my first effort, I'm happy with it!

I know this question is probably asked often, but how much do you think one of these might sell for?

I'm so glad I found this forum. I've already learned so much!
