1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Fabric origami mobile 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

7  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Comparison of sculptures 2 years apart 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

9  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / 2nd poodle with poodle fur on: November 15, 2008 01:52:00 AM
This is my second needle felt sculpture using poodle fur given to me by the owner of the dog.

I carded some of the fur with wool, then I embellished the sculpture with just the poodle fur so the curls were more obvious.
10  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Needle felted poodle with real poodle fur! on: October 24, 2008 12:34:45 AM
My second stab at using real dog fur, but this time I used a lot more as I was given quite a bit of it. So about 75% of it is actually poodle fur. I mixed the fur with some natural sheep wool (that happened to match perfectly) and I used it for the base of the sculpture. Then I used just the fur over the top, on the ears and on top of the head.

Here is the fur I was given (in the bag) and the sheep wool:



And here is the finished sculpture:



And the actual poodle:

I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.  Smiley
