Felting Accessories

I’ve been trying this and that in the hope of accelerating the felting process which I find far too slow for my taste and tried this roller since so many people seemed to be crazy about it.

I found it… useless.

And then I tried this (I think it’s something used to wash clothes by hand)

And so far, it is the best tool I’ve come across!

Even better with a bit of shaving with a razor afterwards

Little by Little

I finally finished the apron dress for my Viking costume and I’m pleased that it didn’t turn into a disaster (it’s far from perfect though). There is still the under dress to weave, only one length is finished (the grey fabric under the orange dress) and I need two more.

I tried to keep it sober. But this is more my style:

I’ll use it for a sweater. I used Malabrigo yarn and some beautiful hand spun yarn, a sumptuous present from a friend.

It’s Lucy’s colour too.

Hand-Dyed Yarn

I’ve been wanting to dye yarn for some time now. I tried today on a sample and I am very, very pleased with the result. It won’t be cheaper than buying pre-dyed yarn, but it will be quite unique.

Beautiful, isn’t it? I am hooked…

Moss Garden

I’m disappointed by this felted moss garden. Maybe I shouldn’t felt at summertime when there’s so little time to create. My patience with felting is already limited to start with.

Baba Yaga

The body is felted and the face is made of paper clay. Hand-woven fabrics. Cauldron and mortar made of ceramic.

Baba Yaga’s Colours

I finished weaving for Baba Yaga today, I’ll dress her up today. These are the colours she wanted, purple and red for her outrageous way of life, green and rust for the forest she loves so dearly and brown for the animal kingdom:
