2  Giraffe.... my biggest piece to date... in Felting: Completed Projects by paxye on: June 03, 2014 10:00:02 AM
I had so much fun making this giraffe...

I knew I was going to make a Giraffe but I had not planned that it was going to be this big... I started with the head and then just added proportionate pieces, ending up with a Giraffe that was just shy of 2 feet tall.

I also started out a completely different colour.. and then decided to change it which made me have to go back and cover it but I happy that I did...

It took me about 4 days to do the spots... so many spots!

But I am so happy with the way she turned out...

So just under 2 feet tall... 9oz of merino wool and a bit of wire in the legs and neck (but not the body)

3  Re: Storing Felting Needles in Felting: Discussion and Questions by paxye on: January 09, 2014 06:43:49 PM
This is my new way to store needles. I bought spice jars from the dollar store and stuffed a bit of wool at the bottom and a little paper with the needle size written. Then poked each needle through the holes.
With the tops on they don't budge and won't fall out which is the problem I had with using cardboard. It is a great way to bring needles places also.

4  Needle Felted Cthulhu in Felting: Completed Projects by paxye on: August 08, 2013 02:16:12 PM
I had a bit of a break from felting over the last month. Not really chosen but we just bought a bus and I travelled 900km to get it and then drove it back home and we are now starting to work on it to transform it into our home.

I had started this one in June and then he stayed uncompleted for a while but I finally came around to taking the time to finish him last week.

If you do not know Cthulhu he comes from the imagination and stories of H.P. Lovecraft...

He is about 6 inches high...

5  Dragon Set with Princess, Prince and Treasure... in Felting: Completed Projects by paxye on: May 27, 2013 01:54:08 PM
This Dragon could be a friend or a foe and the girl and boy are simple but could easily be children from a nearby village or could be a princess and a prince. They all have gold to share with a treasure chest that fits perfectly in the dragons paws. What adventures could be in store for them? Only imagination will tell....

The people are 3 inches tall and the dragon is 5 inches tall.

Thanks for looking!

6  Mushroom house in Felting: Completed Projects by paxye on: May 11, 2013 07:05:53 AM
I am learning more with each creation. Techniques, what work and what doesn't. I am self taught and started just a few month ago but I am having so much fun.

This is my newest creation...

The house, with the roof on, is 12 inches tall and the diameter of the mushroom stem is 7-8 inches wide. The door and window both open and there is a wire frame deep in the core of the house above the door and around the bottom to help keep its shape. The door knob is a button that has been securely sewed on and then secured agin with more wool. Besides those three elements, the entire house is made of wool.

Below the window there is a cute little flower box and there are small mushrooms growing out of the grass around the base with vines spanning the walls.

This is the perfect size for the creature that I make..

Thanks for looking!

7  Emma's Garden in Felting: Completed Projects by paxye on: April 27, 2013 08:08:41 PM
This is my newest creation Smiley It started with a base that was originally going to be something else but then became this garden scene.

When I was a little girl living in the mountains of BC there was a woman in my neighbourhood that would give me sugar snap peas from her garden when I would pass by and this memory came out as I was making the woman for my scene.

Emma is about 4" 1/2 high and the grass and garden itself is 8 1/2 inches by 7 1/2 inches and has a little flower garden in one corner lined with rocks.

She has a raised garden with carrots, radishes, leeks and cabbages which can all be taken out of the garden and replanted. There is a tomato plant in a recycled tire and a bowl that has tomatoes.  Her apron that can be removed, and there is also a pot with two flowers in it, a watering can and a spade.

8  A few new items... in Felting: Completed Projects by paxye on: April 14, 2013 02:22:43 PM
I have been busy felting and though I would share my latest creations...

These are some Magnets I made... I was practicing painting with wool.

This last one is for fellow breastfeeding advocates... I call it "for the love of breastfeeding"

These sheep were made with undyed canadian wool. The wool felts very well and is so "sheepy" I love working with it!

I made this pig also and am planning on making many other farm animals...

Here is my daughter playing with the pig and sheep...

My next creation was this vegetable set...

The last things that I have done (and finished...) are these pin cushions. I went out and found these cute little planters and gave them a new life. I love the way they turned out and I can't wait to go find a few more....

I just finished this one this morning...

Her name is Maeve and she is resting on a log near some Giant toadstools after picking mushrooms. A little rabbit has come to see what is in her basket...

10  Another needle felted pair... breastfeeding mom and toddler with sling in Felting: Completed Projects by paxye on: March 31, 2013 05:41:23 AM
Most of my creations seem to come in pairs. This one is a mom and daughter pair that reminds me of myself and my own little one.

The ring sling was crocheted to measure and fits them both perfectly...

The mom's dress top can be moved out of the way to nurse... (yes, she has breasts Wink )
