This is what I have been working on for the past week (these and several other pairs not pictured).



I expect that this will be a free class when I do get it completed, but that won't be until after the International Women's Show at which I will be demonstrating needle felting. Actually it's more like I'm just going to be sitting there working for four hours each day rather than a "real" demonstration. I'm planning on working on a tapered rope necklace - and I haven't even decided on what colors or anything yet - I better get to it!! lol!!

These are quite amazing! I love your felting (it is quite inspiring, and I hope to become that talents Wink )  I think I love the purple set the most!

Is this all needle-felting? Or is there some wet felting, too? And how long did each flower take?

These are absolutely gorgeous!  I love the beading on them, but the shape is perfect!

Thanks!!! They're very easy and there are endless possible variations! Just changing the color can make a huge difference, but there are so many other things that can be done! Rather exciting, but I never have time to actually make all the ideas I get in my head! lol!! =^..^=

Needle Felting - I've only done a little wet felting and am no master of it! lol!! I like the control of needle felting!

One thing that I do plan on doing (and haven't yet) is to wash a pair of these (by hand) and see what happens.

THanks!!!  Cheesy  Cheesy

I wasn't going to take them to the show given that I don't have the class up yet, BUT decided that since I am in the process of making the class I could take them as a preview! (exclusive to the show) lol!! Should be very exciting!!

These are gorgeous! Who'd have thought felt could look so elegant? Love the shapes and colours.
