IMHO, these are fun to make, fun to wear, roving punched into necktie interfacing

Purse - orig. posted Aug 30, 2005

The design on the flap on this purse was created using a Yvonne Porcella applique pattern but instead of using fabric, the design was filled in by  needle felting roving and yarn into fulled wool.  I use a combination of hand needling and machine needling - though it can be done all by hand (which is what I always did before investing in a needle punch attachment for my sewing machine).  It simply gets done faster with the machine driving the needles.  Works much like machine freemotion embroidery, but no thread in the needles - plus it uses multiple barbed (needle felting) needles.





Comments, questions welcome.  Smiley

Hats & Scarves on: October 06, 2005 09:11:48

More winter accessories, -laminate needle felted, some hand needling but also machine work using an attachment on a sewing machine that holds 5 felting needles.  With the machine attachment is is possible to get fibers other than wool to adhere and fuse into a fabric base.  

These hat and scarf sets have wool and acrylic yarn punched into fulled wool fabric (woven wool fabric that was shrunk in the washing machine until it could be cut without edges raveling)




here is a pic of the machine attachment at work


Enjoy!

Harvest brooches added on Aug 12, 2006

Soft fiber pins to stick on a hat or lapel or ?  Perhaps one could even use them on a vine wreath, but personal adornment is so much more fun.





For a look at a basket full and more close ups,

note:  for the more pointy leaves painted modge podge glue on the edges - read here on craftster where someone used glue on the edges of her fabric flowers to prevent fraying... cannot find that topic again, so unable to post link and appropriate thanks for that idea.  If it is you-- hugs and many thanks.  If  not you, but you recall the link please let me know so I can get back and give thanks.

Regards,
Jane

The leaf and pumkin They are a combination of wool scraps that are fulled by washing and drying several times, then have wool roving and wool yarn punched into them using a combination of hand needle felting and needle punching with an attachment on my sewing machine. 

Some of the softer or more loosely woven wool fabrics tend to get a bit ragged on the edges (even though shrunk/ fulled), hence the glue on the edges.  Some of the ones on the yahoo album also have some vintage findings (buttons, beads) hand sewn on them as well.

The maple leaf started out as a red and black plaid.  Punched maroon and purple roving into it, then the veins are yarn- punched and braided to make the stem.

Hi leslieduckie,  Have heard of Ann's, but not seen their product.  Bernina makes a needle punch attachment that fits on the oscelating hook machines- that is the one used here.  If you are needle punching into fabric, it does move the work much  more quickly -- and has worked with fibers other than wool too.    If you want to see more of my work with needle punch (some all hand,  some all machine) a selection of all my work is at  http://www.mnartists.org/Jane_Carlstrom   

You may already know, there is a yahoo embellisher group at  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BabyLockEmbellisher/

Not very active, but a fair number of photos and some information - though mostly users of Baby Lock embellisher and a few with the Bernina np attachment; none with Ann Vickrey's attachment.

they are beautiful. I love the colors. I'm not sure what to call them either. But they remind of shirt cuffs so maybe a cuff bracelet. I dunno. THEY ROCK EVEN IF THEY ARE NAMELESS!

Those are quite nice, they remind me of something similar I saw at an art gallery.

Hi Meg, these are made with an entirely dry process and felting needles.   Wool roving was needled into  wool interfacing from neckties .  A combination of hand needling plus a good pounding with 5 felting needles  in a needle punch attachment  that fits on my sewing machine completed the dry felting process.  They are wonderfully soft yet very durable.
