  • bird « a life of fibre – Angela Barrow
    a fancy yarn in turquoise in my favourite flowing scroll shapes Blue cap throat and eyes completed the bird which I then needed to attach to the heart The bird is too solid to push the spike into so I covered the spike base with an unfinished brooch layer yes it was waiting glued on some balls to cover the spike and glued the bird to the balls Sort of looks like it s on a nest of blue eggs doesn t it I attached three blue balls to the bells below the heart and was very happy to find a turquoise ball the perfect size for the hole at the top Sometimes it s just meant to be I d like to put this in the garden but we re in a very windy spot and it just wouldn t survive so for now it will hang in the dining room as soon as I get a ceiling hook Tags 3D bird garden art merino norwegian teeswater Posted in Felting 4 Comments 3D Figures Thursday October 14th 2010 I don t do a lot of needle felting as it tends to set off my repetitive strain injury which is never helped by the fact that I get obsessional about needle felting I know it can be done over several days but I always end up needling away for hours because I can t bear to stop before it s finished My latest project is probably my best and I thought I d share a few examples with you The bird shapes are nice to create but I most enjoyed needling the pattern onto the black one that was fun I made Neptune ages ago and thought he needed a mate so here s my new mermaid The size isn t right is it perhaps I should have looked at Neptune before I began the mermaid but never mind she has a certain charm Overall I think I m most pleased with my latest project She s been named the old crone by the family and we think she s lovely I couldn t get the hands as I wanted them so I gave her an apple and a stick to take attention elsewhere Methinks she needs some company any ideas It s much easier to do features on larger dolls Can you guess what this doll is based around a leftover yarn cone Good use of materials eh For anyone fancying a go at a needle felted figure I have a workshop on Saturday 6th November and there are still spaces left Tags bird crone dry felting mermaid needle felting Posted in Felting 2 Comments Reject Not any more Sunday April 4th 2010 A little while ago I was busy making felt Marsh Harriers for a commission The black bird below was a prototype to allow me to assess the shape and how well the finished item would stand up to the proposed educational use I thought it seemed
