1  Re: I <3 felt swap mach II in The Swap Gallery by lynnidings on: February 05, 2006 02:40:16 PM
I've been away on holiday and so didn't get to open my package till late last week. Here's what I got in my felt swap package from GraceOblivious.

It's a sampler with different types of felt. A bar of wet felted soap, a couple of needle felted brooches, a small pouch made with a fulled wool sweater (I'm guessing it's a sweater but it might have been something else), a handbag made with craft felt and a penny rug.

The image on the penny rug is a silhouette of my dog (http://dogster.com/pet_page.php?i=52199). It's a great likeness of him and I love it a lot.

Thanks GraceOblivious, your felt pieces are lovely and I really appreciate all the effort and thought that you put into making the penny rug. It makes me smile everytime I see it.

radal16 and parisgirl, thanks for the compliments on the scarf.

2  Re: needle felting on wetfelted beads in Felting: Completed Projects by lynnidings on: December 30, 2005 03:02:19 AM
Hey Caedara, I made wetfelted beads, which I needle felted embellishments on as decorations for my tiny Christmas tree.

It took longer than I thought and I still have some beads that I haven't done, but since Christmas is over, I think I probably won't get to them.

I love the oval shaped beads that you made, and also the swirly ones. I've been thinking of doing that, did you roll a log of felt and then slice them?

artistrachelmarie, did you spin those on a wheel or on a spindle? I love the chunkiness of Wendy Joe's Cookie Strand.

Here are some yarns I spun this week.

They were made on my trusty CD spindle and so they aren't super long. They are between 45 and 65 yards because my little spindle can't carry more yarn.

Hello Mango, read in the News section that there was a server crash yesterday and Craftster lost a day's worth of data, so any posts or replies posted yesterday were lost. It's like yesterday never happened which is a little strange.

Your yarns are gorgeous as always, I'm always excited to see when you post. I can't believe you made 3 yarns this week. I'm posting my yarn that I finished this week below. It's taken me about a month (picking up and putting down) on my drop spindle. It's going to a friend for Christmas and is my longest yarn yet at 65m.

My second finished yarn for in time for Fibre Friday. There's about 45 yards of it so I think I might make it into a neckwarmer.

6  First (short) Yarn in Spinning: Completed Projects by lynnidings on: October 03, 2005 02:46:42 AM
I picked up a CD spinner at a country fair last weekend and here's a photo of the first yarn I made on it.

I made it with some merino roving and a tiny bit of silk. I'm pretty pleased with it but I don't know what I can make with it as it is quite a short but chunky length of yarn. I haven't measured it but I guess it's about 25 feet. I thought I'd knit it up into a neck gaiter or something but I don't even know if I have enough for that. Any suggestions?

7  Nuno Felt Scarf in Felting: Completed Projects by lynnidings on: September 16, 2005 02:58:13 PM
I went to a felt making workshop earlier this week and I made my first piece of nuno felt. It was made with with some silk chiffon, wool and reclaimed denim fibres. I'm pleased with how it turned out and I've been able to wear it for the last couple of days as it has been unseasonably chilly.

Close up of both sides of the scarf.

One of my favourite parts of the scarf is the piece of reclaimed denim where you can still see the weave. I was hoping it wouldn't fall off when I was done felting it and it's stayed on. I wish I had brought my camera to document the process for a tutorial but I left it at home. D'oh! Next time I'll try to remember.

8  Felt Flower Tie - wet felted in Felting: Completed Projects by lynnidings on: September 08, 2005 06:24:50 AM

I live in a tiny cottage and was trying to figure out if I could wet felt something on a smaller scale. Here's a flower and leaf necktie that I made as an experiment. I tried to embroider some embellishments onto the flower part but realised very quickly that I don't know how to do embroidery and have decided to leave it plain.

I'm not sure that I can repeat this as I didn't measure how much roving I had laid out, but I've been thinking about trying again with other pairs of things (pair of lucky dice, bee and beehive?)

9  Glueless Accordion/Regular Books in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by lynnidings on: September 08, 2005 03:01:40 AM
This is my first post, I've been reading craftster obsessively for the past month and have finally got around to photographing and posting a project. Here are some books I made with separate covers but without the use of any glue. The covers are attached to the pages of the books by some clever folds and friction (I guess). Each book has removable spines that allow pages to be flipped like a regular book, remove the spines and the book expands to be an accordion book.

I made these with acid free paper I got at a couple of art supply and craft shops, but I am interested in making the covers out of old wallpaper samples, when I find them.
