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...

Okay here's some more stuff.

I love the felted fringes of the left scarf. Just like you would expect a good old scarf to be. The colours and the material make sure its not a boring scarf though. I like bright colours in the grey wintertime!
The one in fire colours you can tie so you would never loose it! You could even tie it round your hip!



Soft spikes! In dark pink on one side, and a brighter pink on the other side. I hope the difference in shade is noticable. And some more matching bags. Do you like the way the big one closes?



A felted "Scarflette" with a funky closing mechanism. Who said pink and orange don't go together?
To the right side we have a "caterpillar-scarf" in more office suitable colours. Again you can tie it so you wont loose it.



And last but not least, some scarfes in more muted pastelly colours, some of them with handspun yarn. I am spinning as well. If you want to see some of my yarn, just follow the link in my footnote.



Thats me for today. Enjoy!

Wow!!!

How long have you been felting for? It all looks so well made!

I especially love that fire-colored scarf. Very Australian  Wink

oooooouuuuuuuu, aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh  for sure will be looking at these again and again.  What a great range from bold and bright to office right to etheral floaty light.  What great closures, you are a wonder.  The bag with one short and other long is fabulous and the felt closure on scarf is grand.  You have my mind spinning.  Thanks ever so much for sharing.

I particularly like the closing mechanism of the scarflette. Here is how it works.

I have felted it in a way that 2 feltcords kind of grow out of one end:
Just see in the pic below what I am poorly trying to describe:



The other end has 2 small holes in it. So you put it round your neck, feed the cords through the holes, and tie a fancy knot. Et voil!

I just bought LOADS more fibre on the weekend!  Cheesy
And I decided to give needlefelting seriously a go. So far it is turning out quite well for a first try. I only got his face done so far and it is taking me a long time cause I am dying the wool myself.
As soon as he is finished I will post pictures.

I love the feeling of bringing home bags of new fibre.
Someone else always has to drive the car just so I can play with it all the way home!

And I decided to give needlefelting seriously a go. So far it is turning out quite well for a first try. I only got his face done so far and it is taking me a long time cause I am dying the wool myself.

So you've decided to give needle felting a go? Great!  Smiley
If you feel inclined to show-off how you're making your new needle-felting projects, feel free to post pics of 'felting in action' in the discussion section. You're taunting me with the clue 'his face' and I'm wondering what you could be making!
Hmm, just realised we haven't really discussed dying on this board much.
Wonder who else here hand dyes their wool.

I am fibre crazy at the moment. Fibre has always been the main thing for me. But in the past few months I spent every free minute I had on felting, dyeing or spinning,  leaving no time for embroidery, glassbeadmaking or sewing.
I finished his head last night. Its kind off freaky when you poke a bit of fluff with a needle and suddenly it stares back at you. I will introduce him when he is finished.

I might take some pictures of some scarfes I have done recentley and post them. Although they are supposed to be part of a set. The matching other items are all sketched out, but I have no idea when I will get round to felting them.
