Got some yummy new colors of dyed wool roving, and thrifted a few sweaters (felted in washer) to try my hand at some hats, mittens, slippers... really needing to get making on xmas presents here... Inspired by this book:
I cant really post much about gifts i am making, but i can post a few pics of things i've started for etsy... haha, hopefully i dont end up slacking and needing to give these, and the suprise is ruined..oh well, ill risk it..
This was actually my more stylish adaptation of a classic favorite, the fanny pack.
I was putting it together for myself, so i could keep track of my new phone which i got 2 weeks ago. Well, guess what, not yet finshed with my snazzy hip purse, and i have already lost my phone.
Life is funny sometimes...not haha funny, i mean painfully WTF, are you serious?! funny .
Oh well, i acually do laugh about these things, because, i never cease to amaze myself... and, if i do not laugh, i will cry, hysterically.
ok, where was i? oh, so, this pouch is the perfect size to fit a blackberry( boo hoo hoo) and a wallet, and i think i will be adding a fabric pocket for a pen or change or something... It is made of 2 wool crocheted swatches, from just practicing, and i needle felted a flower on with some roving and yarn.
Felted sweater, needle felted roving and yarn...
I am going to be adding a bit more folksy style needle felting to these...
i think they are major cute!
i added some details to my pretty little mama here, added a scarf to keep her head on:)
working on getting this lil fellas face right...
