New felty things – but not scarves!

Here’s a quick catch up on my latest felt creations.

Green orange bowl I finished the little green/maroon bowl by adding the circle I’d cut out to make the hole of the bowl. I needle felted a piece of wine coloured chiffon with some silk rovings and finished it off with a few red and orange coral beads. The photo doesn’t do the colours justice really – the silk that looks blue in the photo is really a greeny grey and blends with the bowl’s colours.

After struggling to like the tall green vase, my son upturned it and stuck it on his head.

“It’s a hat.”

I reluctantly had to agree it is a hat.  I so wanted it to be a vase.

Donning the thing on my head, I had to admit it does look Dr Seussy, and pretty damn funtastic!

So hat it is.

Turquoise felt bowl

The other day I had a go at making a felt vessel – I made a small round vase.

Using turquoise, light and deep blues, merino wool rovings, silk tops and also alpaca, I crafted this little bowl using the wet felting technique, around a resist.

The resist was made from a  double-sided piece of bubble wrap (two pieces sticky taped together back to back) and cut to the size and shape of one of my side plates.

After I’d finished, I used the little circle that I cut out to form the opening in the bowl and twisted it into a spiral, sewed on some glass beads, added a turquoise feather and attached it to the bowl.

It looks like a little up-turned hat lol.

I do think it’s cute though.  What do you think?

Anyway, as it was a first attempt, and turned out the shape I wanted, and not collapsing in on itself, I’m spurred on to make some more.

My ambitious mind is imagining tall slender vases with added detail, and perhaps some with wispy tops.
