11  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Steampunk Easter Egg on: March 13, 2016 09:38:56 AM

I'm currently doing some experiments with fiber and metal. My metal smithing skills are not profound!! lol!!
and of course, I have to work with what I have on hand which also is limiting - still fun to do! =^..^=
12  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Pretty Pesky Portrait Pet Pin for a Friend! on: February 28, 2016 02:09:33 PM

This was made for one of my friends who is a big a lover of animals as I am!!!
When I started doing the dog pins, I wasn't intending to do any of them as an actual dog - this is, obviously, very stylized, but I think you can tell that it is her Jackie!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy =^..^=

Finally getting over a really bad cold!! (first time I've been sick in ages) Have been busy editing classes and other things. Hope to get back into the swing of things now that this cold is going!
14  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Happy Cat Brooch on: January 10, 2016 01:36:23 PM

A friend of mine is putting together a polymer clay class with the cutest cat brooches - that inspired me to make this one. I haven't achieved her level of "cuteness" yet, but for my first one I'm also a happy cat!!! =^..^=
15  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / 4th pattern Dog Brooch on: November 27, 2015 07:02:03 AM

I keep wondering if I should put some french knots on his forehead too.
Slightly different construction method than the first brooches. Wearing him now to see how he holds up to being loved by my cats and dogs! Wink =^..^=
16  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / 3rd pattern Dog Brooch on: November 25, 2015 11:37:24 AM

Zebra Dog with jingle bell feet!!

Slightly different construction method making use of both needle and wet felting. Looking for ease of construction and increased durability.

Have two more dogs (not this pattern) drying. They'll probably be finished tomorrow.
17  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / New pattern Dog brooch on: November 15, 2015 03:22:23 PM

Made a bunch of sketches yesterday evening for dog brooches - this is one of the new ones. Since I have all this fiber out one my work table I decided to use what was there and took the coloring for this one roughly based upon one of the dragons in How to Train your Dragon.
This one is mostly needle felted except for the feet. I did make and wet felt a fabric to use on this or one of the other new designs. =^..^=
18  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Dog Brooch - wet & needle felted on: November 11, 2015 06:22:21 AM

Doing some experimenting this week - made the "fabric" and then wet felted it and the fiber balls for the feet before putting this altogether. I plan on trying an alternate method for creating the fabric and I want to also try this in different colors to see how that works. =^..^=
19  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Sew What - wet felted bracelet on: October 14, 2015 12:19:03 PM

Working on some ideas and trying different things. =^..^=
20  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Gnome Witch on: September 26, 2015 07:08:29 AM

Redid some details on this one - made her taller - most of my gnomes tend to have a rather compact stature, but I decided that she needed to be a bit taller.
Added more rings to her fingers and the french knot roses to her dress. If I wasn't busy with other things, I probably would have done more embroidery on her dress.

She's on a shelf in my craft room next to my Father Christmas figure. =^..^=
