    wracking as I had to avoid cutting through flowers on either side When dry I sewed the two halves together onto Bart and then re commenced felting him As you can see he had to be turned all ways up for this process He looks splendid sitting on the lawn and I am pleased with how he s turned out Taking him to the workshop for his legs fitting was really interesting watching him be drilled and riveted and then fitted onto the stone It made my day and I felt like I was then handing over a whole bird I know you don t get a sense of size from this photo but he is now approximately four and a half feet tall I ll add more pictures of the finished Bart once he goes on display Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website Subscribe to my blog Join my mailing list to receive latest workshop dates and felt news or My Flickr Photos Hints and Tips Tutorials Tutorial Felt cord making Tutorial 3D Pod Tutorial Nuno felt scarf Tutorial Trollen weaving Tutorial Seamless Felt Handbag Tutorial Seamless Felt Notebook Categories Book Review Curlew Diaries Featured Maker Felt United Felting General Metaphor past workshops Spinning tutorial Search blog Good stuff Andrea Graham Arlene s felt Attic 24 Cash en Els Clasheen Felt Alive Feuer und Wasser Fiona Duthie Foxglove Felts I live I love I craft I am me Irit Dulman LoveFibre Rabenfilz Renata Felt Studiofelter Tanglewood Thicket Terrie Kwong Threadborne Vilt a la kim Vital Temptation Wildy Woolly I m a member of Felting and Needle Felting Forum Archive April 2016 March 2016 February 2016 January 2016 December 2015 November 2015 Older entries April 2016 March 2016 February

    help keep him wet as fast as I pour the water on it runs off When wet the felt is quite heavy and the seam began to pull apart as I moved Bart around and turned him over to work on him so it was out with the needle and thread for an emergency repair Today I ve rubbed for over four hours but I do now have the shiniest smoothest hands I ve had for some time I do admit to using a net and plastic bag to rub him with Swaledale fibres are quite coarse and there s no way I could have worked Bart for so long had I used my hands there d be no skin left by now I m nearing the end and with luck I ll finish Bart tomorrow which ll just give time for him to dry before Monday Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website Subscribe to my blog Join my mailing list to receive latest workshop dates and felt news or My Flickr Photos Hints and Tips Tutorials Tutorial Felt cord making Tutorial 3D Pod Tutorial Nuno felt scarf Tutorial Trollen weaving Tutorial Seamless Felt Handbag Tutorial Seamless Felt Notebook Categories Book Review Curlew Diaries Featured Maker Felt United Felting General Metaphor past workshops Spinning tutorial Search blog Good stuff Andrea Graham Arlene s felt Attic 24 Cash en Els Clasheen Felt Alive Feuer und Wasser Fiona Duthie Foxglove Felts I live I love I craft I am me Irit Dulman LoveFibre Rabenfilz Renata Felt Studiofelter Tanglewood Thicket Terrie Kwong Threadborne Vilt a la kim Vital Temptation Wildy Woolly I m a member of Felting and Needle Felting Forum Archive April 2016 March 2016 February 2016 January 2016 December 2015

    place When using pre felts it builds up the layers of fibres and that means lots more rubbing if you don t want the flowers to start lifting off when you begin rolling I d done a good job with the rubbing and I know this beacuse as soon as I did my first one hundred rolls the template began to buckle inside the fibres and it was time to cut it off Scary I cut the template in two and removed the plastic Imagine my distress when I discovered thin patches with the potential to become holes during the felting process If it had been a smaller project I would probably have risked it but I couldn t face it with Bart I d rather be safe than sorry This has meant me turning the felt inside out and adding extra fibres in the areas giving concern The two halves of Bart are now drying so that I can tack them together on him tomorrow Being dried first will allow me to control the weight of the fibres whilst I do the tacking after which I will then rub to felt the two halves securely together Troubles always begin when the felt comes off the resist it looks like Bart is no different to any other project Did I mention I m supposed to have him ready to hand over by next Monday Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website Subscribe to my blog Join my mailing list to receive latest workshop dates and felt news or My Flickr Photos Hints and Tips Tutorials Tutorial Felt cord making Tutorial 3D Pod Tutorial Nuno felt scarf Tutorial Trollen weaving Tutorial Seamless Felt Handbag Tutorial Seamless Felt Notebook Categories Book Review

    such a strong shape in the form of his body that it really needs something different on him It was necessary to dye some more fibres and thanks to Yvonne for explaining that it was the use of magenta in the mix that caused my pink problem earlier Apparently it s a strong colour which is grabbed more quickly by the fibres and the blue is left behind at least I m not the only one it s happened to I ve also calculated the size of my resist for Bart and it will be huge 171cm from beak to tail and 89cm from head to undercarriage Bart will be the largest most oddly formed 3D shape I ve ever felted There s going to be fun ahead P S Katharine has confessed to crocheting a penguin holding a snowball and wearing a stripy hat To the right is a picture of Kate s crocheted guinea pig brilliant Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website Subscribe to my blog Join my mailing list to receive latest workshop dates and felt news or My Flickr Photos Hints and Tips Tutorials Tutorial Felt cord making Tutorial 3D Pod Tutorial Nuno felt scarf Tutorial Trollen weaving Tutorial Seamless Felt Handbag Tutorial Seamless Felt Notebook Categories Book Review Curlew Diaries Featured Maker Felt United Felting General Metaphor past workshops Spinning tutorial Search blog Good stuff Andrea Graham Arlene s felt Attic 24 Cash en Els Clasheen Felt Alive Feuer und Wasser Fiona Duthie Foxglove Felts I live I love I craft I am me Irit Dulman LoveFibre Rabenfilz Renata Felt Studiofelter Tanglewood Thicket Terrie Kwong Threadborne Vilt a la kim Vital Temptation Wildy Woolly I m a member of Felting and Needle Felting Forum

  • Birdless in Ilkley « a life of fibre – Angela Barrow
    time available I have to complete the curlew in time for it to dry and be handed over three weeks today Natural dyeing takes more time and I would need to check each recipe for colour fastness which also takes time So natural dyeing will need to be a project on its own So I ve had a lovely day dyeing Swaledale fibres Blue Faced Leicester roving silk throwsters waste silk chiffon and muslin Well there s no point in wasting all that dye is there You can see the results for yourself The Swaledale isn t a pure white wool and as you can see it takes the dye differently from the Blue Faced Leicester BFL Some of these colours look quite bold but flat at the moment however when carded together and mixed with the ready dyed BFL they ll be great Towards the end of the day I made up a purple dye bath and put in Swaledale fibres muslin roving and some Wensleydale curls and the strangest thing happened With the exception of the muslin which came out blue everything came out pink As I rinsed the fibres the excess dye washed out was blue This has never happened to me before I ve checked that it was an acid and not a fibre reactive dye but that s not the reason Anyone with an explanation please let me know Meanwhile it will all have to be dyed again and hope that when I come to produce some more greens that I don t have the same problem with the blue Whilst I ve been writing this I ve had a call to say that I can collect my curlew yippee P S My friend Kate has admitted to crocheting 3 guinea pigs does anyone else
