Anyways here are a couple of photos of birthday presents I have made . One is a trivet for my boss/friend Kelly (chicken is using a cookie cutter and felting the roving in it) and the other is a felted bowl for my sweet niece Quinn. I crocheted the bases first with a roving wool from Bernat (I think) then needle felted the wool roving into the base till I liked it.
They were pleased with their handmade gifts so that is important right? I am going to go to a Stitch and Bitch get together today at our local wool shop and check it out. I would like to find some other felters I can play with here in town. I do have a class booked the end of March using wet felting to make a vessel, like a bowl or a vase. So looking forward to that!
Sure feels like spring here in the valley hope you are getting better weather too. Winter 2014 has been a rough one for many of you. Take care and I will try to post more often the remainder of the year.
