1  Fabric origami mobile in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by feltpets on: May 31, 2010 11:43:16 PM
I am expecting my first child in September, and we don't move into our new home until August, so I haven't been able to nest in the truest sense.
So to occupy my idle hands, I decided to make a mobile for the baby.
We do not know what sex it is yet, so I'm just going for colourful decorations in a neutral room (when we get a chance to paint it!).
So I looked for inspiration on the 'net and came up with origami cranes made out of fabric (which I stiffened).
I also had a lot of fun at the patchwork store rummaging through the fat quarters looking for the best colours and patterns.
Here are a few pics.  Smiley

Hi, I'm new to this thread.
But I made a paper wreath for Christmas from this tutorial:

Thanks for the great feedback.  Grin
Its only palm sized. I think I used either 4mm or 5mm eyes.

Some recreational felting:

He started off as lioness! Before I added his mane.

Thanks Tracey.
I hope you have the opportunity to start on your first project real soon. Careful, needle felting can be addictive!

I have only made one other similar bear called "Honey Bear".

I use dog brushes to card my wool too. And yes I do get some knots, but its a matter of practice. Here is a pic of my brush when I was blending poodle fur with wool (I have two of these brushes).

Here is a really helpful youtube tutorial that may help:

10  Comparison of sculptures 2 years apart in Felting: Completed Projects by feltpets on: December 30, 2008 03:06:32 PM
I recently had a friend ask me to repair a sculpture I made of his dog - it lost an ear. I made the staffy almost 2 years ago, and my technique has evolved a lot since then. So I decided to repair the sculpture and make a new one.
So here is the result:

Sculpture #149 (Ruby the staffy December 30 2008) on the left and sculpture #4 (Ruby the staffy January 10 2007) on the right.

And here is the real Ruby:

What a difference 2 years makes!  Smiley
