Christmas felt pebbles, brooch & pic

I fancied a change today.  No scarves today, I wanted to do something different. Something cute. Something small.

Felted Christmas pebbles

So I collected some pebbles from the garden and felted them in Christmas colours;

red with green silk,

white with red silk,

green with red silk,

white with purple silk,

purple with white silk and a touch of sparkly gold Angelina fibre.

Yummy!!

I’ve also covered one pebble in dark blue with lighter blue silks and I think I will be embroidering a star on that one.

I think these will make lovely little stocking fillers, or Christmas table decorations.

Then I made a…

15x15cm Felt picture

This is of an evening nature scene, 15x15cm which I will stick onto a canvas of the same size.

Here are a couple of pics of the layout and the picture itself.  The first one is of the layout, mainly of merino wool, with some silk tops, a little Angelina fibre in the sky, some nepps as stars, some silk noile flowers and a little bit of silk sari for patterning in the foreground.  The photo of the layout was taken in daylight and the one of the finished painting was taken in artificial light this evening, so there’s a bit of a difference with the hues.

Needle felted brooch – country scene

Then, with time to spare, I got out my felting needle and a large button for sizing, and felted a little nature scene with a poppy in the front, which I stuck onto the button, after I’d attached a brooch clasp to the back.  Here are a couple of photos of this.  It is very cute, and only 4cm in diameter.

I thoroughly enjoyed making these different objects and I’ll make some more smaller, and different items, which I’ll be able to display for my customers at the two pre-Christmas markets that I’ll be attending.

New network scarves

As Christmas is around the corner with only three markets before then, I’m making more treasures for my stall.

The latest two little beauties are network scarves – one in reds and oranges, the other in blues and turquoise.

Each have inlays of silk chiffon, silk hankies and silk tops all of which I hand dyed first.  The silk ensures a fabulous lustre to the scarves.  That, plus dimensional yarn snaking along the length of each one, gives each scarf a rich, interesting finish that is enhanced by the complimenting, striking colours.

New Bracelet / Cuff

This evening I made my first beautiful little bracelet / cuff.2013-04-03 22.38.02

Inspired by the ocean, this unique piece of wearable art – “Ocean” Cuff Bracelet is wet felted with finest merino wool and silk tops, embroidered with lustrous cotton, and needle-felted with silk chiffon ribbon, then finished with glass beads and a mother of pearl button. Held together by easily opening/closing press-stud.

I’m inspired to create a few more cuff bracelets in different colours.

Meanwhile, here is a gallery showing different views of the Ocean cuff.
