Hi, are you ready for a bit of wet felt overload today, lol. I can finally show you this felt wall hanging I made for my friends 40th birthday.
And some felted brooches that I've been selling in my local art gallery. OO! nearly forgot to mention some very exciting news, do you remember my 'Meadow' felt wall hanging that I posted about recently? Well a couple of weeks ago a lovely lady bought it to hang in her lounge. Oh the delicious warm feeling that a total (but lovely) stranger has fallen in love with something that I've made and likes it enough to want to gaze upon it every day! Priceless!
Anyway back to wispy felt flower brooches.
These peacocky coloured ones are something new for me, I hardly ever work in blues, I'm very much a pink girl.
They take an absolute age to make (well it feels that way) each individual petal has to worked between my fingers until it's felted.
But it's worth it in the end.
They seem very popular at the gallery.
Now to the 'secret' felt wall hanging.
I made this for my lovely friends 40th birthday.
Lots of curly wurly wool tops on this one, and some sparkly sequins to make it shimmer as the light catches it.
It's not too large... after all, she may not actually like it. She may decide to hanging it in the loo. You've got to think of these things, lol.
Well it's time to go now so I shall leave you with a sneaky peek of my current felty offering. Here's a pic of me grappling with it on the kitchen table. It's waaay bigger than my bamboo blind can cope with, I'm on the look out for a 3 or 4 foot wide one.
Right, back to the sewing machine.
Thanks for dropping by.
love Fi x
