    you most like to make in a workshop Tags bear needle felting Posted in past workshops No Comments Meet Jacob Wednesday March 12th 2014 I have a needle felting workshop the day after tomorrow and I thought people might like to see what they ll be making Jacob is made entirely of British Jacob wool He s quite a splendid little chap about 5 high If you fancy making a Jacob of your own there s still one place on the workshop Tags bear needle felting Posted in Felting 1 Comment Halloween Thursday October 31st 2013 Hubby recently discovered needle felting and has some talent for it So far he s made santas sheep and this witch which I thought would make a great Halloween post As you can see she s far from perfect and her broom looks broken but she was a fun figure to make It is unfinished and a bit fuzzy but she s definitely a character What have you been up to this Halloween Tags needle felting witch Posted in Felting 1 Comment A pair of robins Monday June 17th 2013 On Friday I taught a needle felted bird workshop and we decided to make a Robin It s so easy to become obsessed when needle felting and to not want to stop working You could have cut the concentration with a knife as these two perky creatures were created Vicky and Anne did very well with their first attempts at needle felting birds even managing very good wire feet We had a little time left and they chose to have a go at making quick needle felted creatures This cheeky little thing sticking it s tongue out is by Vicky And this rather sad looking individual is by Anne Aren t they cute I Tags bird needle felting Posted in past workshops No Comments Pin cushion Wednesday May 29th 2013 I ve had this quick project in mind for a while it s a needle felted pin cushion with a daisy motif I began by rolling up and lightly needling some Cheviot wool for the core Then wrapped it in green Merino again lightly needling it into place and ensuring there was no white peeping through I used small strips of white merino to help me draw the outline of my daisy After filling in the petals I then attached a centre in yellow Merino Voila finished Tags needle felting pin cushion Posted in Felting 3 Comments Catch up two Friday October 12th 2012 After landscapes I then moved on to plant life and the first idea I came up with was cotton grass you get a lot of that on moors It s not really my usual thing but I did enjoy making it First I wet felted the background then dry felted the cotton grass onto it finishing off with some cotton fibres More of these definitely This led me onto further plants but I wandered off the moors into the hedgerow

    pleats means more stitching and felting but it was on it s way to completion by the time she left I can t wait to see a photo of it finished Irene was also inspired to try one with more pleats and this shape I created based on a shell but Irene s colour choice of turquoise with a white interior was stunning It was a joy to work with these lovely ladies and a very big thank you to them all for their help in tidying away Clifton Village Hall is a really nice small hall with views into adjoining fields full of sheep and donkeys All my workshops are being held at this venue for the remainder of the year I hope to see some of you there Tags bag handbags pleated bag 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 2016 January 2016

    rug wool which I rescued from a skip and dyed up After punching an extra hole in the end of the belt I attached it using more rug wool I m not entirely sure I like this but I wanted to use only recycled items If it doesn t work out I may buy a couple of brass rings later After further searching through the jar I found a few more washers and a metal tube no idea what that was for which I used to make a fastening More of the rug wool used to make a linked chain It goes across the bag and the cylinder is used as a toggle fastening Do you like it I m pleased the fastening works so well It s a nice long strap and you can see the pattern well on the bag One of my favourite decorations So pleased with it The only new item in this bag is the wool I used in the felting I m entering this into the Ilkley Flower Show tomorrow in the something new from something old category Wish me luck I ll let you know how I get on but most of all I m looking forward to using this bag I even made it deep enough to take my knitting needles Tags bag nuno recycling Posted in Felting past workshops 6 Comments Poppy bag workshop Thursday September 26th 2013 Just for a change the delay in showing you these photos hasn t been down to me My Daughter took the card from the camera for a school project took it to school and left it there All s well that ends well though and I thought I d begin by showing you the bags during the laying out process Each bag has an internal pocket and a separate handle After laying out the base layers of green we carded greens to give extra interest to the background and then laid out areas to create dark and light After that it was onto the laying out of the poppies using different sizes to give perspective to the work The larger poppies then had extra detailing added and I think you ll agree that the finished bags are stunners These are the backs of the bags and from left to right were created by Jane Sue and Susan I ve never taught a bag class like this before Usually everyone has made a bag but with completely individual colours and patterns There was still opportunity for people to choose their own poppy layout and addition of other colours for highlighting but otherwise it was as instructed It s worked out very well and I think I may repeat this in the spring Anne didn t make it on the day due to a family accident but she was in our thoughts and I hope everything is now well Tags bag past workshops poppy Posted in past workshops 2 Comments Poppy Bag Sunday August 25th

    clutch bag with a 3D poppy and it worked out very well There s a bumble bee on the back of the bag and I m kicking myself as I forgot to photograph it This large poppy on the front of lesley s bag is very striking and a real feature Gill produced a bag with a double flap The interior is plain so provides a great contrast to the front The back is a picture on it s own Gill likes to have her creations on show and is considering filling it with lavender and hanging it in the bedroom which I think is a great idea Couldn t resist this final picture of a front and a back they re stunning Sadly I m unable to identify whose work it is but it s very good Roll on the picture workshop next month there s spaces if you fancy having a go Oh and before I forget thank you to whoever washed the pots for me all help is always gratefully received Tags handbags past workshops Posted in past workshops No Comments Poppy Bag 2 Wednesday September 18th 2013 I shared with you previously one of my samples for tomorrows workshop and thought you may like to see more When we think of poppies we usually think of bright red ones but as the following photos show you can work in other colours too These were put together very quickly and I do think they can be improved upon but they also show that other colours can be successful This is the bag we ll be focussing on tomorrow This first photo shows it during the laying out process It s important to use different size flowers to give perspective to your work The larger flowers near the front are also the ones which will be given the most detail I love the way this bag has worked out from the actual flowers to the happy find of a perfectly sized red button in my stash to the design of the handle I find the back as interesting as the front and the handle gives me great pleasure It opens up many possibilities not to have the handle felted in Tags handbags handmade poppy Posted in Felting 6 Comments Bag workshop Thursday March 14th 2013 The photos for this blog are courtesy of Lesley and Stephanie I know you re all now thinking that I forgot my camera yet again but honest I didn t This time it was the SD card which wouldn t work When I got home Hubby temporarily sorted it with the addition of some sellotape but I fear I need a new card So without more ado the reveal This time we were working in Jacob fibres for the main body of the bag with any colour being supplied by Merino or other embellishments Above you can see that Denise has added coloured wool nepps and curly kid Mohair Below Sylvia has added Mohair merino and some soyabean I think Pam has added coloured wool nepps curly kid mohair and soyabean fibres The nepps and the mohair were very popular that day and they do make attractive decorations The grey and the black Jacob fibres really show off the additions well and make these bags to use with any outfit Next up is a tote style bag from Jean The wiggly lines are yarn pink spots are Merino blue spots are dyed Ramie noil and yes some coloured wool nepps as well The wiggly yarn really gives the bag life Lesley went for full on impact and achieved it brilliantly through the addition of bright purple Merino and dyed Teeswater curls The flap was stretched to exaggerate it s width and make a feature of it Stephanie chose to go for a round bag and came prepared with some angelina fibres which have added a little sparkle to the bag with the remainder of the colour provided by Merino and dyed Teeswater curls I know she s now gone on to subtly stitch right across the surface of the bag which has just added to its charms That concludes another great workshop Where are my manners Thank you for all your help setting up and clearing away ladies many hands do indeed make light work Tags bag handbags past workshops Posted in past workshops No Comments Gotland handbag Friday March 1st 2013 Looking through my fibre stash I noticed some Gotland that had been waiting quietly for ages and decided it was high time it was used Unusually for me I decided to work from outside in and began by laying out some pre felt decoration on one side and hand spun Soay yarn on the other After completely encasing the resists in fibre I then added a further resist on each side to form the internal pockets then it was down to the usual rubbing and rolling Gotland is quite an easy fibre to felt and is a lovely shade of grey I was ably assisted in my endeavours by Puck Puck never likes to be far from me and often follows me around the house as I do my chores A blanket lined box on a sunny windowsill is just the place from which to watch others work Cut from the resist and turned right way out Being a long fibres you can see that the fibres have migrated right through the Merino pre felt which has lost some definition The Soay yarn has almost completely disappeared as it was quite fine Obviously if I was repeating this I d lay it on more thickly No shoulder strap this time just simple slits in the wool to form hand holds I like this simple shape of bag and it s very easy to do Tags Gotland handbags Posted in Felting No Comments Fleece and quick update Tuesday December 18th 2012 I ve been contacted by a local farmer with Ryeland fleece

  • pleated bag « a life of fibre – Angela Barrow
    group Our subject was pleated handbags a workshop I m growing to love ever more and indeed have extra ideas to develop it as soon as I have a little more free time The options were to make a sheet of prefelt and stitch the seams as well as the pleats or to work on a resist All but one decided to work on a resist I love turquoise blues and this bag for me is a perfect size anything larger and I fill it with rubbish until I can t find anything The original intention here was to pleat the vertical coloured lines down the front of the bag but this was rethought and a real strong feature made of the flap instead In my opinion Janet it s very successful Sue had to leave us early and so although her stitching was complete she didn t have time to finish felting The picture makes this bag look green when actually it s lovely shades of yellow gold on brown Again the flap became the feature and I think the three small pleats work very well with the shape of the flap The handle will be stitched onto the outside pretty much as you see it creating even more interest My phone has made this look blue when it s actually a vibrant purple This is a large bag and so it was no surprise that Liz didn t manage to felt it on the day so much pleating to do Beautiful colours here really showing off the space dyed fibres Although not quite complete it was well on the way to being felted One of two circular bags and here I must apologise for missing photos There was a cute round purple bag with a flap which was finished and for which I have no photo even though I could have sworn I d taken one However when I cam to load these I realised that I haven t got pictures of two more Sorry Happily you can see this one where the spiral pleating emphasises the circular shape of the bag Last but not least is another beautiful leaf shape with much care going into the stitching Liz had just finished as I took this shot and I have to admire the zen like calm she maintained throughout the day as I know I never manage that as a participant The larger the bag and the more pleating then the less chance of finishing at the workshop but I know they won t regret taking them home to complete as they re all going to look amazing Thank you for a pleasant day ladies and a very tasty lunch Tags pleated bag Posted in past workshops No Comments Pleated bag workshop Sunday September 13th 2015 We had a great time at yesterdays workshop despite the awful weather outside and a bit of a late start sorry people It was at St Peter s Church Hall in Addingham
