1  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / How to protect finished felt from dirt on: July 17, 2008 02:39:11 AM
I'm new on this board and to felting so I hope my question is posted in the right place...
I'm trying to find out how to protect felt from getting dirty. Is there a protective spray or a lotion or something you can use to keep the colours and texture fresh and clean?

Thanks for any hints you can give me...
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / is this too much? on: June 22, 2008 05:52:06 AM
A friend and me want to start out on a market stall selling handmade jewellery.
We want to make a bunch of these asymmetrical necklaces.

What do you think of these?
I would love some opinions and critique...

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / how to make these 'woven' earrings? on: June 01, 2008 06:18:42 AM
I've been trying to find out how to make this type of earrings for ages, I've seen this weaving in different places but dn't know what it's called.
Can anyone help what the technique is and how to make it?

Thanks  Smiley

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My 6 year knitting project... on: April 04, 2008 05:16:05 AM
OK, I've started working on this 6 years ago...I knitted 77 squares but obviously I made some very long breaks in between.
The idea was to use up all sorts of left overs, different colours, textures and try different patterns...
I still haven't finished the edges but I'll probably crochet that as it will be quicker...I think it was well worth the wait...I absolutely love it:

This shows the edge, I tried different patterns for this but it would take even longer if I did it this way all the way round...

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / My photography, would it sell? on: January 13, 2007 07:03:50 AM
I've been thinking about selling my photography for a while now...

This is just a small selection, I would like some feedback.
I sell them mounted and framed in whatever size wanted.

7  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Felted bowling bag on: December 16, 2006 09:30:05 AM
I finally finished my bowling bag. I had tried to change the size slightly but it got soo big and expensive I had to undo it and finally settled with the original bigger size from the book.

I used 100% wool which means it was only a third of its original size after felting.

The felt is very strong and stable enough to use without lining.

I love it and I hope my friend who gets it for xmas will like it too...
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / ghetto blaster transfer (now with Tutorial) on: November 24, 2006 02:45:50 PM
This shirt wasn't exactly stencilling, more image transfer...

I just printed the picture with a laser printer and transfered the pic with turpentine onto the shirt.
It makes a really nice effect, kind of vintage and its MASHINE WASHABLE, no problem at all...

one corner bled out a bit, no idea why...

9  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / neckwarmer fast and easy on: November 04, 2006 06:57:37 AM
I knitted the neckwarmer within a couple of hours and did the flower in crochet as I'm just teaching myself.
I was actually surprised that it turned out quite well.


10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / super warm glittens on: November 03, 2006 10:08:51 AM
I've made these - don't know what you really call them - cross between mittens and gloves by mixing a number of patterns, was my first try and I'm quite happy, just gotta sew on the nice wooden buttons I got at my local market
