October 3rd was marked as the fisrt ever International day of Felt!!
I, personally, am trying to use it as a means of reaching out to my community to see if there are any other crafty/artsy types out here.  The population is less then 300 in town with a few hundred others spread out ruraly.  There has to be at least one or two others lol.
 
Lets start at my house:
My first ever nuno felted item.  it is a rectangle with limitless possibilities, and may end up becoming a cowl -if it doesn't end up buggy, but its quite cool out so I think maybe the bugs are sleeping now Smiley.  


In the background of this one you can see my door knob hanger:


Here it is up close and personal!


Next stop is the locally owned grocery store,  Another of the "door" hangers, hung on the bars, so that it wont get caught in the door and get wrecked.  I did stick tags on it with a link to FeltUnited.com, and my info on the back, in hopes someone might take one and call me inquiring further into felting.


And lastly the bank.  I also made the ladies some rope necklaces, but did not get pictures of those.
good shot of the flower:

good shot of the bowl:

and the display as I put it out.  they also had some of thier information on the table for a gas give away... but eh, can't fight to much right?  besides, my flower makes it look all look really pretty!


have a happy international day of felt!

I love the look of felt, it's something I've always wanted to try! 

I really like your "flag" - the colours are wonderful!  And the flower is pretty Smiley  Well done!

Thank you!  Felting is a really rewarding (and somewhat instant gratification) craft (art?)   I love it and encourage you to dive in and give it a try!

Awesome Belladune! 

I love your piece of nuno - the colours are blended so perfectly, it just looks gorgeous!  I'm also loving your door hangers - great texture!

I hope you get some bites from the community about felting!
