21  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Raccoon on: August 08, 2015 12:17:35 PM

Not actually something new - I've just been looking through some of the images of creatures I made that sat on my husband's desk. Most of them have been tucked away for safe keeping. I think I may open the box and let the creatures sit on my desk for a while! =^..^=
22  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Fiber Mokume Gane - bracelet on: July 07, 2015 10:17:10 AM

Third in a series of experiments I've been working on over the weekend. Still need to do some more experiments to refine the technique and improve control of results (as much as the concept allows). Rather fun to do, but it takes so long waiting for the bracelets to dry! =^..^=
23  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Wet Felted Bead Necklace on: June 24, 2015 08:56:35 AM

Another wet felted bead experiment - working to put this together as a class. I did a lot of prototype experimentation a while back (some of those experiments were posted here on the forums). Still a bunch of work to be done, but I like this necklace!

Still wish I had access to a lot more interesting beads - there's only Michael's and JoAnn's around here for beads. Selection is okay, but not great. I've bought some beads online, but sometimes it is hard to tell what a bead will really be like until you see it in person.

24  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Nuno felted Eyeglass cases on: June 03, 2015 06:20:46 AM

Not your normal nuno felting!
I didn't have any silk or cotton gauze with which to experiment. I did have some cotton calico so I decided to try it out on that. It worked really nicely and the result was a great padded fabric which is perfect for eyeglass cases - would also be great for smart phones and small cameras!
25  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Wet Felted Birdhouses on: May 27, 2015 12:49:45 PM

Continuing to teach myself wet felting so did some resist felting and made these birdhouses! Pretty neat project all in all. I do have one hung out in the garden and it is holding up to the weather pretty well. Haven't hung up the other examples that I made as I think they would probably be best hung under the eaves and that would require the ladder etc. etc.
26  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Wet felted purse on: May 01, 2015 11:22:37 AM

I'm teaching myself wet felting.

This was resist felted and is all one piece. The felt is inconsistent in thickness which is entirely my own fault. I was anxious to try the idea about the shape of the resist and the final product so I really was not being careful. I also made this on a smaller scale - might be large enough for a child. One thing I learned from doing it a smaller size is that some specific felting I would have liked to do became impossible. I basically was trying to save on the amount of fiber I needed while doing an experiment that I had no idea would even work. I also worked on a smaller scale because I don't really have a place where I can work with large pieces of wet felting. I did manage to expand my work area today so I will sometime set out to make another purse maybe even of a useable size! =^..^=
27  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Greenman Brooch on: March 26, 2015 08:41:27 AM

He's a combination of needle and wet felting. I've been doing quite a few greenman experiments lately. This is my favorite. =^..^=
28  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Trapeze Mouse on: March 13, 2015 09:02:48 AM

Was doing some technique experiments and then put them to use making this little guy!  Cheesy Cheesy =^..^=
29  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Literary Mouse on: March 09, 2015 11:21:11 AM

Lately I've been doing sketches loosely based upon the Redwall illustrations by Christopher Denise. This mouse is loosely based upon one of my sketches. =^..^=
30  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Lady from the Woods - ball-jointed needle felted doll on: February 19, 2015 09:16:44 AM

I've been wanting to try making a ball-jointed needle felted doll for some time. Finally did!  Cheesy Cheesy =^..^=
