Felting again :-)

Felting again :-)

I may well have shown this before, but as I am so foggy headed, I can't remember , but this started off as an attempt at wet felting which went wrong (as usual for me), so I decided to needle felt it instead. It is meant to be something like a hanging basket, again my technique needs to be refined, but as an early attempt the outcome is not too too bad.

Aww thank you, it is very simple as it was my first real attempt at needle felting, so when people said it looked like a hanging basket I was so pleased, because that is exactly what I was basing it on ! :D :D

We've either all lost our brains, most likely for me, or you've only shown this to a select few!!! (Just being cheeky.)

You've done another good job Foggy, it looks really good. Well done.

It's lovely, well done!

I've not tried needle felting as not sure if it would set off my RSI but I did decide to start & have a shot at wet felting about 2 months ago. I started with some felt flowers for brooches & progressed to a small handbag last week. The lady in the shop where I've been buying my roving from said that if I made a mistake just stick the piece in an old pillow case, tie it up & stick it through a wash cycle. It works, saved a couple of pieces I tried to make using the resist method - don't think I rubbed/rolled them for long enough (even though my arms were really aching by the time I finished )!

I've since seen a method on You Tube where an electric sander (inside a plastic bag to keep dry) was used to do the rubbing - almost tempted to tie a rope round my waist to brave the hell hole that is our garden shed to try find where ours might be!

Have you tried Nuno felting? I fancy trying it but think that would need proper tuition rather than YouTube!

Hi Lima, sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I would love to try Nuno felting, it's right up my street, but I am trying to walk before attempting to run, that having been said someone ages ago gave me a rather plain silk scarf which may well morph into a tad of Nuno felting before too long :-) :-)

Foggy x. (Hope you're doing ok ?)
