Hello everybody!
My first post on the feltingboard! I took some pictures today of some of my felted items.

A bag and a matching scarf in multicolored polkadots

I love the scarves in the second photo.  The red and pink one reminds me of starfish.  Too cute!

Yo!  Me thinks you like polka dots!  Hey, so do I.  Thanks so much for sharing and joining in here.  Your work is lovely.  The muliti-color polka dots are fab and the lacy scarves are so graceful.  ooooooohhhhhhh I like em all.

Welcome to the felting board caedara, I'm so excited that we have another wet felter among us  Grin

That pink starfish scarf is great. How creative

Your circles look so neat for the solid scarf + bag. Looking at them both I keep imagining star-bursts replacing some of the circles.
(I did some on my flowerpot hat. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51908.0 )
Although it's summer here in Australia, you've insprired me to give it a go!

Again, welcome to our community Smiley

I love seeing new projects! The polka dots look so fresh and I love the lacey but pointy quality of the other scarves.

Thanks! Glad you like them! I prefer wet felting. I like feeling the felt forming directly in my hands. Its much more sensual, well in my opinion.
For the Polkadots I used the prefelt method to get the edges that sharp.
So, lacey felt is what you call the technique of the last 2 scarfes in English? I am actually German and just moved to the UK. It's a little bit weired sometimes. There are words I only know in my mother tongue and others I just know in English.
Maybe I will get round to post some more pics when I am home from work.

Oh, and Jane Doe I like your hat! What material is the ribbon made out of? I have done Starbursts myself (used them for flowers).

The material I used was just a loose weave cotton fabric off-cut I found in my fabric bin.

You're from Germany? You should speak to CraftyZary. She's a felter on this board also from Germany so if you're stuck for crafty language she might be able to help?

I don't think 'lacy felt' is the term for a technique, rather a description of your scarf as being like lace.

An offcut? Who would have thought that! Great find!
The german term I know would translate to something like gridscarf. Although its not really a grid as in straight lines, but it has holes...
