Hi All,

I've had two days of great felting. Ideas kept coming up! First I made the orange fish, the aqua fish, a rainbowfish and after that 2 Little rainbowfishes and last but not least the punk fish.

I used the flat resist method and made an incision which I sewed after stuffed the felt with wool. Look for yourself. Any comment or questions are welcome!

I like your fish.  Very colorful, love the blue one and the checkerboard like one.  I haven't tried wet felting, do they stay soft or firm up?

They are feeling soft and firm, but that's also depending in how much stuff you use when you fill them up.

I've now chosen to make a hollow felted piece and filled it up with washed wool and lavender and sewed it. It's also possible to make it completely out of wool, but I think the time to finfish a fish then will be longer.

Haha! I like your punky fish. He looks so mischievious.
Your felting is getting really sturdy and neat!
