2  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Wet felted bracelets on: December 14, 2019 12:54:23 PM

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.

Portions of his costume were wet felted.
4  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / December Mouse on: December 01, 2019 12:29:26 PM

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.
5  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Latest Brooches 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.
6  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Needle and Wet Felted Necklace 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.
7  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Embroidered brooch 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.
8  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Slowly getting a studio space for myself on: August 31, 2019 04:31:07 AM
Having lost my life's work and all my tools and materials in that fire, I've been slowly trying to arrange a space for myself and purchase necessary tools and materials. I won't ever be able to replace what was lost, but moving forward is necessary.

Currently I'm honing wet felting skills. I had only done a little wet felting in relationship to classes I created for CAE. I'm doing more wet felting now for the sake of permanence of the pieces I make. Mostly I have been working on brooches. Their size being relatively small allows me to experiment and refine techniques more easily than with larger projects.

Here are some of my brooch experiments:

9  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Recovery - eco printed felted bracelets on: October 09, 2018 09:34:43 AM

I have been "missing in action". Last December my studio/office burnt to the ground and I lost 40 years of work; tools; stash; photos; computers etc. etc.

We only got water restored in August. My son's friends filled jugs with water every week so we could sort of function. We're working on re-arranging the house so that we have places to work. The dining room is going to become my new "studio".
I will be doing some mix media pieces. I salvaged bits and pieces from the fire debris with the intent of using them in something.

These bracelets were worked over wire that was salvaged from the debris. It was probably electrical wire: copper. For the first pieces I've been able to complete since the fire, I'm pleased.
10  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Air Fox One on: September 18, 2016 01:38:42 PM

Just a bit of fun. Actually made the fox ages ago. Was taking a break from wet felting (letting my fingers dry out and unwrinkle) so decided it was time to liberate the fox! =^..^=
