11  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Re: Wet-felted cherry tomatoes (Updated Pictures) on: May 23, 2006 08:24:19 PM
The bigger, red tomatoes are about the size of a quarter. I've been experimenting more with felting and it looks like I might be sewing an entire felted tomato plant to a dress as my final grade twelve art project. Wish me luck, it's going to take me aaaages!

I've been on craftster for ages and completely forgot to come and identify myself in the halifax thread, whoops! I also second (third?) the reccomendation for The Loop. I was in today agonizing over yarn, and I think next time I'll probably suck it up and buy felting needles as well.

Hee. It's the angle I most frequently see of myself, given that spending all your time admiring yourself in a mirror looks a bit vain, not to mention kind of impratical. I am not making any sort of "I am only my ladyparts!" deep statement or anything. I was just looking for an interesting way to do a self-portrait.

Just a self portrait done in my sketchbook that I worked on for a few days in a row! (2B and 4B pencils on paper)

Today I went out and bought more kool-aid; a light green and a blue. I dyed more of the wool in the green and then dyed it again in a mixture of the blue and green. Now my tomatoes have a home!

A home and a green tomato baby sibling!
The stem is wire wrapped in acrylic yarn, and I sewed the tomatoes on with some clear nylon thread. I'm not really entirely pleased yet with the way the leaves look (I'm having some problems getting flat things to felt evenly, but I'm pretty sure that's just a practice thing) so I think I'll try again later this weekend.

I tried my hand at wet-felting for the first time tonight, using the felt bead tutorial and made five little kool-aid dyed cherry tomatoes. The green, leafy part is just some lame acrylic yarn threaded through the bead, but I'm sure you needle felters could make these totally felted. (And therefore much more awesome.)

Wet-felting beads turned out to be just as easy as you guys made it out to be (thankfully) and although my kitchen now smells distractingly kool-aidy, I'll definitely try doing more things soon.

I have those sheets on my bed! Now I'm all conflicted - I love my sheets, but nobody ever gets to see them. I think I would miss them if they were a skirt, though.
18  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Being Cheeky @ the WalMart Fabric Counter on: May 15, 2005 10:38:32 AM
Thanks, myloveasdeep for pointing out that some wal-mart employees have to take care of more than one department. My mom works at Wal-Mart in the summer, and for some reason, they only hire one person to cover domestics AND fabric, so that's like seven aisles of house things and then the five aisles of craft things, as well as the entire fabric section.  Undecided Knowing that always makes me super-careful about putting things back properly in fabrics and domestics. Poor employees.
