1  Mammoth Hot Springs Scarf in Felting: Completed Projects by schtankylu on: May 14, 2012 10:33:01 AM
I've wanted to do some sort of felt/fiber tribute to amazing places I've been in my life. Mammoth Hot Springs is this incredibly dynamic geological wonder, and I HAD to make something.

I special ordered a batt with natural white and fawn suri alpaca, dyed merino wool, and firestar for some sparkle.

Gorgeous landscape:

I AM SO HAPPY how it turned out!!!!!! It is SO soft~ I can't wait to choose another place.

I also made 2 skeins of yarn from these batts over in the yarn section.

You can read more about the process (it's really a tutorial) at http://pearhugstudio.blogspot.com/2012/05/mammoth-hot-springs-felted-scarf.html

3  Underwater Seascape in Felting: Completed Projects by schtankylu on: May 06, 2012 07:48:28 AM
I am so excited about this piece.

I used both undyed and hand dyed Merino top, hand dyed Lincoln locks, cotswold/suffolk cross locks, and wensleydale/coopworth lamb locks, and some firestar for sparkle.

It is both wet felted and needle felted for detail and measures approx. 8.5 in. x 7.5 in.

I would LOVE to get some feedback. We have a fiber fest coming up and I'd like to submit this in a category! I've never put a piece in anything before, so I am stoked.

4  Geode Brain! in Felting: Completed Projects by schtankylu on: December 06, 2011 09:20:36 AM

Here is what I made in my felt workshop with felt artist Sharron Parker. We made a felt ball (geode is what we called it) with lots of colors rolled up inside, sliced it into cross sections, then made a flat piece of felt with parts of the geode sections embedded. Finally, I sewed 2 big cross sections onto the felt with fishing wire. The top cross section is further folded on itself and stitched. My intention was to make a piece of art based on CT scan brain imagery. Crazy, right? It's so bold and fun. It's about 14.5in. x. 8 in.

My daughter is obsessed with Yo Gabba Gabba so I made her an Oski bug!

6  Rainbow Happiness! in Spinning: Completed Projects by schtankylu on: December 02, 2011 09:16:06 PM

This might be the prettiest thing I have ever made in any medium!

My friend asked if I could make her a single thick/thin yarn for some doll hair. I mainly needle/wet felt but have made 2 skeins on a drop spindle before, and I wanted the challenge!

Batts I carded up:

The first picture is halfway through.

Here's a picture of my favorite section:

My fiber friend saw this on facebook and said she could make me a giant art yarn spindle, since I ended up rolling it on my thigh since the spindle is not at all heavy or big enough for the type of yarn I want to make. I am pumped!

I can't wait to build a lightbox and take professional-looking photos with this yarn. It just makes me so damn happy to look at it. It's just merino with a touch of firestar. If I get my hands on some other fibers--I might just implode.

7  Mama Blessing figurine in Felting: Completed Projects by schtankylu on: November 29, 2011 06:56:55 PM
My friend had a mama blessing, or a blessingway, or an alternative to a baby shower. I made this waldorf-inspired pregnant earth goddess mama figurine for her.

Thanks for looking! My favorite part is her hair-I chose the most perfect hand dyed locks!

Thank you for all the great replies!

He sold! I was super excited! He'll be living in NYC now! YESSSS

This random person on etsy contacted me to see if I would make another one. I said sure and got to work! If I don't hear back from her (after a few back-and-forth exchanges) I will just list it in the shop.

He's more Concerned, Pleading Lorax rather than Angry Lorax like the first one. His beard in #2 is from a Random Crazy Quilt Farm fiber cloud from Homestead Wool and Gift (http://www.homesteadwoolandgiftfarm.com)

He's super fun to make!

I am so happy this idea actually got done. It's a needle felted Lorax. I challenged myself to do it, and I DID! WOOOO
