Had lots to do with my son this week so didn't get in a lot of time to work. Did manage to make these.

It's been a long time since I needle felted a creature. I'm definitely out of practice.
I spent a whole day just experimenting making toes and I'm still not happy with the results.
While I still want to focus on fiber jewelry, I think I will try to make a point of doing more creatures in between other projects.

6  Latest Brooches in Felting: Completed Projects by Harlan on: November 26, 2019 10:25:17 AM
I'm still not up to snuff, but getting better. Some of these pieces were started a while ago with only the finishing embellishments completed recently.
They're all a combination of needle and wet felting.










The acorn cap in this piece is one I found when digging through the ashes of my studio looking for anything that survived.

7  Needle and Wet Felted Necklace in Felting: Completed Projects by Harlan on: October 07, 2019 10:38:27 AM
necklace-Oct-2019 by Jeanne, on Flickr

Needle and wet felted necklace. Mostly an experiment with using some lovely Merino lace weight yarn and learning to wet felt around an armature (shaker ball). The sari silk ribbon ended up not being as strong as I would have liked so I will probably replace it.

Thank you!!

I really like those colors and will probably do some variations.

This is the original brooch in these colors with a thinner layer of Merino that made controlling the embroidery shapes more difficult:

The yarn that I used around the middle section is this gorgeous variegated thin and thick yarn for which I had some specific plans. Made some test pieces and found that the color doesn't hold up under wet felting. Will still find more uses for it, I'm sure.

9  Embroidered brooch in Felting: Completed Projects by Harlan on: September 22, 2019 12:04:09 PM


Merino felted over a craft felt foundation. I did a brooch similar to this one using less Merino. It fully covered the craft felt, but wasn't dense enough to do controlled shallow embroidery (i.e. not needling through the craft felt interior).

This brooch was created with probably twice the thickness of merino. Both were wet felted and fulled in the same manner. The extra merino allowed for better control of the embroidery.
