21  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Re: eco printed pendant on: July 18, 2016 08:55:42 AM

It's Merino wool that I needle and wet felted into a disk before eco printing. I'll probably do another similar to this and I think I may want more space between the handmade/eco printed felt and the frame. It's a bit awkward stretching it onto a frame evenly, but I'm sure I will get better with that! =^..^=

Thanks!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Here's some more of my experiments:

I haven't had a lot of time to actually work these into finished pieces of jewelry although I have been giving that a lot of thought. I'm probably going to try some embroidery and beads on some of these to see how I like that. These beads are very lightweight which makes for some problems in terms of draping. I believe I figured out a good way to make use of them last night which I hope to get to try before too long! In the middle of editing a lot of classes so not entirely sure when I will find the time, but hope it won't be too long! =^..^=

I've been trying to fit in some more experiments between editing classes. Really liked this particular eco print. Took me a while to figure out how to use it. =^..^=

I've been experimenting with this for a week now. Have a lot more examples that I haven't photographed yet, but I really liked this one and took a photo this morning. Last night's batch also has some lovely greens. I only opened one to have a peek. I won't be able to examine and photograph those for another day or two! =^..^=

Another useful source is to find online fiber exchange groups - even if you don't have fiber to exchange you can sometimes buy fiber at very reasonable rates!! There's one lady that sells me her skirting (cleaned) - usually takes a while before I can get it, but I get a lot very inexpensively! That particular fiber I can't use for most of my work, but for projects that need a fiber with a really fine crimp - her shetland fiber is perfect.

For core fiber, I buy wool batting from wool mills - it's meant to be used in comforters and quilts, but makes a wonderful core fiber.

Beautiful!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I think I like the purple one best, but that may be my bias for purple! Wink
