1  Holiday Applique Tea Towels in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by PerfectlyBohemian on: December 07, 2017 11:16:10 AM
I made these recently to help out geekgirl1000100 with all of her holiday swaps. The kitchen towels are from Trader Joe's and are perfect for adding applique to! I free-handed the patterns and machine stitched the edges of the applique for extra durability. We have Rudolf, a birdie with holly, and a trio of Christmas trees!

2  Harry Potter Sorting Hat Tree Topper in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: December 07, 2017 09:36:03 AM
I made this recently to help out geekgirl1000100 with all of her swaps. I saw "sorting hat tree topper" on her to do list and instantly claimed it Cheesy This guy is fairly small because he was made for a 3' tree. He's all needle-felted. He's also quite a grumpy looking hat Wink

And I didn't have a tree to try him on at the time, so here's my head for scale/action shot Tongue

3  Spooky the Moth Kid - a needle-felted Halloween sculpture in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: October 26, 2017 09:11:20 AM
For the weekend Trick or Treat swap last week, I decided I really wanted to make a new sculpture similar to my "Rusty the Moth Guy" for my partner. Since this was supposed to just be a small item, I had to go as "mini" as possible without losing the ability to incorporate some of the features that I wanted to use (twice wrapped legs, button eyes, felted sweater wings). He wound up being bigger than intended - a problem I have been struggling a lot with on most of my projects Tongue I'm mostly happy with how he turned out. I definitely could have spent more time felting his head and body to firm up the sculpture, and I'll need some lighter gauge wire in the future for such small figures. His armature was really tough to work with on a small scale because it was made with a pretty heavy wire for my bigger projects.

I'd like to now introduce Spooky the Moth Kid! Spooky dressed up as a little devil for Halloween this year!  Grin He wouldn't stop touching his devil horns, so they are a little crooked. You know how moth kids are. Wink

4  Wet-Felted Jack-o-Lantern Trick or Treat Bag in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: October 26, 2017 07:03:13 AM
For the Weekend Trick or Treat Swap I decided to make the bag I sent for my partner. I have been wanting to do more experimenting with wet-felting, and this seemed like a fun way to do so. The bag and strap are wet-felted. The face is needle-felted. The bag came out much thicker than I intended because the black wool inside kept slipping down and felting at the bottom when I started. I definitely have some better ideas how to make this next time, but I'm still pleased with how it came out Smiley

And all filled up for the swap! (post for Spooky the Moth Kid coming soon!)

Oh my goodness. Whistley spoiled the crap out of me!! In my excitement, I forgot to take a picture of how jam packed the box was that arrived at my house yesterday. It was so full that it didn't all fit in the trick or treat bag she made.

Also - did anyone know that dinosaur egg whoppers were a thing??? My life has changed. These are the best things ever. Forget Robin Eggs. <3 Also in the goody pile are lots of other candies, some small decorations for my cubicle at work, lots of buttons and the other type of buttons (for pinning on), a self-inflating balloon(!!!), stickers, washi tape, a small selection of woodland craft supplies, a necklace with a hobbit hole door and a little fox (<3) and star, and a garden gnome that will be moving into my garden quite promptly. 

The bag has fun folky Halloween fabric on the outside and funner bright green bats on the inside. This bag is also going to be a perfect lunch bag for the fall - yeah I know Halloween will be over real soon, but this bag is fun!

She also made me a lovely hoopla with a twisting fabric tree and a spooky grave site. I love the fabric she chose - so me. Smiley

(Not sure why that photo shrunk, sorry Sad)

Thanks Whistley and kittykill for the great swap!

6  Wet-Felted Jack-o-Lantern in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: October 17, 2017 09:47:27 AM
Another thing I made MissingWillow for the 13 days of Halloween swap! A functioning jack-o-lantern that I wet-felted and sent a little battery operated tea light with Smiley I used a balloon to make an orb-ish felted thing and then cut out the details after removing the balloon. The details and lid were needle-felted on. It's maybe about the size of a "pie pumpkin".

7  Zombie lamb - life-sized and needle-felted! Eek! in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: October 13, 2017 02:31:04 PM
I just finished up the "mini" 13 days of Halloween swap with MissingWillow this month! I had a great time felting a bunch of stuff for her because she's been heavily hinting towards wanting some felted items from me for a while now Wink I've made her a zombie sheep in the past, but since then I have gotten addicted to making over-sized felted items! So behold! An almost life-sized zombie lamb! Complete with dislodged eyeball, peeling flesh from his backbone, exposed muscle on one leg, and entrails dragging the ground.

And one of my face getting eaten by the zombie lamb (for scale!!)

8  Needle Felted Upcycled Sweater Stag Patronus Pillow in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: October 09, 2017 07:23:06 AM
Here's another project that I made towards the beginning of the year for a private swap. It's a Harry Potter themed pillow with a patronus shooing away the dark shadows on the edges of the pillow. Smiley One of the sweaters was part cashmere, so it's a very cuddly pillow. The back of the pillow has an envelope closure for inserting the pillow form. I think it was a 16" form.

9  Stargate: There's no place like Earth in Needlework: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: October 06, 2017 01:33:13 PM
I made this for my friend geekgirl as part of a private swap at the beginning of the year. She requested a similar, round design in cross-stitch, but I don't do cross-stitch and wanted to put it in a rectangular frame, so I... adjusted the gate Tongue Hand embroidered with a felt applique border. I haven't watch Stargate, but this was a fun little project.

10  Fiddlin' Fox and Hoppin' Hare Felted Hoopla in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: October 06, 2017 01:29:35 PM
I made this for the Woodland Swap in the spring this year. I feel like I can't get away from foxes - I love felting them so much! I started learning to play the violin this year and had the urge to incorporate music into a craft project, so I gave the fox a fiddle and a friend to hop along to his music. The base is wool-polyester blend felt sheets that I hand stitched together. All the flowers are embroidery stitches, and the leaves are also felt stitched down. All of the fox and rabbit are needled felted. Smiley
