    me quite a while to find the time to write it all up It s quite a simple bag with no strap but a nice shape and a good bag to begin with It s listed on the resources page and there s also a link to it from the column on the right of this blog I d love to receive your comments both good and bad so I can improve it if necessary Enjoy Tags bag seamless tutorial wet felting Posted in tutorial No Comments Working with Herdwick Sunday December 5th 2010 If you keep Herdwick sheep you have access to lots of fleece What to do with it all Well in recent times the fleece has sometimes been buried or burned as it s had such a small commercial value Some spin it and a few learn to felt with it Yesterday I had the privilege of teaching a small group how to turn it into felt We weren t working with raw fleece Halifax Spinning Mill near Selby is able to process small numbers of fleeces so we were working with Rose s carded batts I think Herdwick are quite pretty looking sheep but the fibre has a poor reputation with some feltmakers and many are frightened to have a go with it It has quite a coarse fibre so it s not suitable for clothing but no reason why it can t be used for pictures bags rugs and other items that don t go against the skin This one would make a lovely wallhanging I think As with other fibres it will grab and hold onto yarns silk fibres and Teeswater curls as you see above and it has a nice mottled grey colour I don t know why two look brown because I promise you they are grey The pictures don t show that some pieces also have angelina fibres included At least one has successfully added synthetic yarn and another has embroidery thread in it In my experience you get a shrinkage rate of around 30 with Herdwick fibres less than with breeds like Merino and Blue Faced Leicester You need to use more soap than you would with Merino and to be gentle in the early wet and set stage to avoid spreading the fibres So yes it does take more patience to felt with Herdwick but it is possible and not nearly as difficult as some believe I d like to leave you with the photo below This guinea fowl has found the warmest place on the farm for cold feet and the Herdwick sheep doesn t seem to mind Thanks to Rita for the picture Tags herdwick wet felting workshop Posted in past workshops 3 Comments Wakefield Felting Monday November 1st 2010 This is my first chance to show you some of the stunning bags that were made at Wakefield last week Aren t they wonderful It never ceases to amaze me that everyone starts with the same basic

    destined for my shop Tags BFL notebook Posted in Felting 6 Comments Not much is the answer Saturday December 15th 2012 Remember I asked what should be on the front of this Elizabeth had good ideas but I really didn t want to lose the beard I liked it I tried stitching wavy lines on but they didn t work so I removed them Then I started a line and it turned into a heart with patterns inside but I knew even whilst I was sewing it that it just wasn t working for me so that too was removed Thoughtful pause what was it again that Elizabeth said A fastening I tried this small metal button and for some reason it just made me think door I liked it but not as much as these three Now I m thinking cuff Much as it hurt I tucked the beard under to see what it looked like clean shaven and I m afraid the beard just had to go So I ve removed the beard and stitched on the buttons and the answer to what should be on the front was not much There s a small pile of discarded curls by my side which I can t bear to throw away so they ll live to felt another day Tags norwegian notebook Posted in Felting 4 Comments BFL notebook Tuesday December 4th 2012 For those of you who aren t fibre nuts I perhaps need to explain that BFL is Blue Faced Leicester and its what today s notebook is made from I hand dyed oatmeal BFL in shades of pink and blue and laid out a background Then I laid on strips of crystal organza wich I love for the texture they give Next on was small pieces of sari silk and mulberry silk fibres in red and turquoise Followed by short lengths of grey and turquoise roving part spun yarn You can see I ve part untwisted the roving to create open areas and decided it needed a few extra pieces of yarn twisted into loops Next time the finished item Tags BFL notebook Posted in Felting No Comments What should be on the front Thursday November 29th 2012 I ve made this small note book cover in Norwegian wool with a Wensleydale beard Hubby doesn t like the beard too impractical but I do like it Do you Helped again Not really this time he was actually trying to distract me as he wanted my attention and kept rubbing himself against my hand as I tried to take photos Below is what I wanted to show you The problem is that the front seems a little too blank and I can t decide what to put on it Initially I appliqued a sheep on but it wasn t right and I cut it off but it does need and deserve something I m toying with the the idea of a heart but am also considering a

    Laying out several fine layers I used about 180g of wool for the pair and they felted up an absolute dream Really lovely fibre to work with not that I d want it in a scarf not soft enough for my delicate skin but definitely a great 3D wool I was very pleased with the results Tomorrow I ll show you what was made in the workshop I ve bought more of this wool and will spin some up as soon as I get a minute I think it will look great when spun Tags slippers Posted in Felting No Comments Warm comfy slippers Friday February 15th 2013 I ran a slipper making workshop last week and forgot to take my camera along so these pictures come courtesy of Lesley India was accompanied by her daughters so help with the final shaping was very forthcoming We used a variety of wools that day including BFL Shetland and Norwegian and the results are brilliant although I m sorry to say we haven t captured all of them One day maybe I won t forget things Tags past workshops slippers Posted in past workshops No Comments Slippers and chicken combs Thursday March 8th 2012 I know I always seem to say this but I really do mean it we had an absolutely fabulous day on Saturday We were making slippers using Norwegian and English wool plus chicken combs People worked really hard on these and some were complete beginners at felting here s a short selection of what was made From top left going clockwise slippers are by Mich Cheree Alison and Liz It amuses me to look round the room and half the people seem to be missing as they re bent double trying them on As for the chicken combs well that was Angela from Yorkshire Hurdles keen to incorporate felting into her willow weaving A good job of it she made too If you fancy going on a willow course Angela is a good tutor did you see my dragonfly We has a significant birthday in the house too so the day was punctuated by a rendition of Happy Birthday with yummy cake followed by an incredible buffet lunch supplied by Angela Claire and Gill hope I ve spelt those right Thank you so much ladies a thoroughly enjoyable day P S A heartfelt thank you for assistance with the great day end putting away task Tags past workshops slippers Posted in past workshops 3 Comments Slipper workshop Sunday December 12th 2010 I was privileged to teach a lovely group on Friday and we had great fun making slippers and using our own feet as the lasts Until you re sure you want to make lots of slippers it doesn t make sense to buy polystyrene lasts as they re not adjustable and you d need a pair for each shoe size So it s obvious isn t it Just use your feet I love the contrast interiors on
