2  Muhu island inspired slippers in Felting: Completed Projects by piskie-mishkie on: March 14, 2010 09:27:17 AM
Made some slipper for my grandmother-in-law. she turned 71.
my favourite aspect about them is that the black is from a black sheep, from the sheep down the road.
the fibres felted together better than any dyed wool ive ever used (synthetic/natural dyed). it was very enjoyable... and fast!
the design on the slippers isnt original- i took inspiration from local traditional slippers- i thought she might like that
(search muhu slippers)
she loved them , and i hope you enjoy them too! Smiley

3  Re: Learn To Spin 2010: Source your tools in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by piskie-mishkie on: February 02, 2010 02:59:48 AM
im very much looking forward to joining in,
I didnt have a spindle and so asked my grandmother-in-law. lucky for me, both my grandmother in laws live near by and combined can do/ have just about anything and everything. so i asked if she had one, and this is what she gave me

now it looks a bit different to the ones ive seen on google and here.

its what the locals here use (in estonia) so its definately good.
the whorl is made from dolomite, and this makes it very heavy compared to a wooden one,and that i have to spin over a mat.
does this mean a thick yarn would be spun best? please advise

4  felt 'painting' in Felting: Completed Projects by piskie-mishkie on: December 29, 2009 06:41:46 AM
heres a nice big piece of felt, that has a colourful detail on it.
i really love it, it took ages and ages, and its finally ready. it was supposed to be a big pillow, but i love it just as a wall hanging

i would like to try sell this piece, but im not sure how to price it, as ive never sold any felt piece like this before (*usually i sell hats). any advice on a price would be very appreciated!

made these little guys for a local craft store-  as the strawberry season started and i was loving everything strawberry! they sold so well that now they are a regular, and keep me pretty occupied! the back has a magnet. they were made by mixture of needle and wetfelting. and are about 5 to 6 cm tall.

6  pink pixie hat in Felting: Completed Projects by piskie-mishkie on: July 12, 2009 12:36:14 AM
we made this the other day, as all the summer flowers came out, and something playful and feminine seemed appropriate
