Oh, that looks great. I agree that it looks much nicer than the one in the book - I had no interest in making it before I saw yours and now I'm calculating how long it will be before I can get to the yarn store...

My first picture post!

Here are two pairs of earrings I made by needle felting. They sort of remind me of little ice cream scoops - mint chocolate chip and strawberry swirl  Smiley

I love how they're big and bobbly, but really light.

Hmmm... well, I had medium success with the wet-felted beads last night - still can't get the results I want from just wet-felting, but if I needle-felt the roving into a loose ball and then wet-felt it, it comes out nice.

More experiments tonight!

Oh thanks, graceoblivious - I think that will help. I'm pretty sure that I was applying too much pressure too soon. I'll try it again this weekend! (once I finish with the sushi bead tutorial - I'm DYING to try that out!)

I don't know what I keep doing wrong when wet-felting beads, but mine keep coming out misshapen with creases in them, looking like...rabbit turds, mostly. I get lovely results with needle felting but it's so slow! Oh well, keep practicing I suppose...

Wow, so many Saskatchewanians! I'm in Regina - been lurking Craftster for ages but just joined recently.
28  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What can I knit with 100% acrylic yarn? on: May 04, 2007 11:26:09 AM
Because you can just toss it in the washing machine, it's also good for pet things - blankets, beds, sweaters etc.

I like to use it for stuffed animals, cat toys, christmas ornaments and little accessories like flowers. If you knit anything large, keep in mind that it will stretch. My first knitted project was a Harry Potter scarf - it hung to my waist on both sides when I finished it but now it's down past my knees!

I also like it for spring/fall hats, since it's not as warm as wool.
29  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: First attempt at a cane and some little food on: May 03, 2007 03:50:03 PM
Much much nicer than my cane attempts - I think that's very good for a first time! I wish mine looked as good!

Those are nice!

What kind of clay do you use? Do you find any problem with breakage at all? I haven't had good results with Sculpey for thin things like this but from reading stuff on this forum I gather that other kinds like Premo are stronger.
