Felting!

OK so I have been busy and have not been here..... we all take breaks sometimes right?
This is what I have been up to..............

I went to buy some Pom Poms for the headbands I am making for a local clothing shop
and was not pleased with what was out there,
so I wondered, how hard could it be to make my own?

And since am making my molded flowers out of felt right now
I want felted balls.

I check out my favorite shop for classes but they don't seem to have any that teach the fine art of ball making! Plus I wanted to make them NOW.

Sooooooo $100.00 dollars later
I am teaching myself how to make all sorts of felted things, and I am getting
excited.
It is so
fun! It is so rewarding! It is so expensive!

The expense is partly due to the fact that
I have had some "mishaps"
and that I am going crazy with ideas and trying out different techniques
in a flurry of felting madness.



What you see above is some of what I have been up to and there is much more
in various stages littering my studio and the dining room table too!
I kind of spilled out all over the place in my frenzy.

I am hoping to have a model soon
(My niece has generously offered since I always said she should be a model.)
and I think the pictures will be much better than this last one of a headband on a cantaloupe!


See you all soon with more..................
