Giveaway-Bits and Pieces

Giveaway-Bits and Pieces

I thought it was time I did another Giveaway 🙂  I’ve gone through my stash of embellishment fabrics, fibres and scraps and put together a package that should give you plenty of choices for adding extras to your felt creations. These are some gorgeous metallic novelty yarns/fancy fibres. There are 5 different ones each about 3 metres long.

There are also some shorter lengths of novelty yarns in all different colours and types.

These gorgeous crinkly fibres are from another novelty yarn that I unravelled. I used a lot of them in this piece here.

There are some pieces and scraps of silk:


Gratuitous supermacro of organza 🙂

and synthetic fabrics

There is also some Cotton Noil

And some natural fibres and top, Top L-R Egyptian Cotton fibre, Crimped Viscose fibre, Bamboo Fibre. Bottom L-R: Flax, Ramie, Banana top.

If you’d like to win this fabric and fibre giveaway, simply comment on this post. I’ll announce the winner Next Sunday, 21st October. Please can the winner comment on the announcement post within 2 days so I can contact you for your postal address, thanks a lot 🙂

Most of our readers know about our Forum, but if you don’t, it’s a community of felting and fibre artists from around the world who get together to chat and ask each other questions about anything felt, fabric or fibre related…or chat about the usual things like the weather 🙂  We love reading the comments here on the blog and visiting the blogs of anyone who posts and has a link to theirs, and it’d be nice to be able to keep in touch more and build more community links. We’re all interested in the fibre arts, so if your interests are felting, mixed media, spinning, weaving, freeform crochet or something else we need to know about, come and join us, share photos of what you’re working on, ask for advice, give help to fellow fibre artists, meet friends and have fun!

  1. I love the organza photo – very close-up is fully justified as far as I’m concerned!
    And those fibres in the last photo look as soft as duck down.
    What is it about such photos – I should have put on a pelican bib before looking at them to save my tee-shirt becoming soggy through dribble.

    1. Ha 🙂
      I must admit, I was playing around with my fibres longer than I needed to, to do this 🙂
      They look gorgeous and the natural ones smell gorgeous too 🙂

  2. These look like they would be so much fun to play with! BTW – it looks like the link to show what you made using the crinkly fibres isn’t working properly.

  3. My mind is off on a tangent about how to use the fibres and other shiny things. I hope I am lucky enough to win!

  4. I must say, I really enjoy reading your posts and I would love to try some of the fibers that you are talking about in this post. We have the SouthEast Animal Show this month and I will look for them there. Thanks for all your informative information. I especially liked your pricing series.

  5. Ooooooh! I’m drooling too! These look supercalafragilsticexpialidocious – I’d use a better word if I could think of one. My right brain has gone into overdrive. 😀

    Count me into the draw! ::)

  6. I Just discovered your blog, and would LOVE to play with these samples! Please count me in for the draw!
    Now I’m off to join the forum…

    1. Thanks everyone 🙂
      Thanks for joining the forum, Kristin, I hope you’ll enjoy it and I’ll look forward to seeing you there 🙂

  7. Love your pictures! So inspiring…I was thinking that we could do a little stash exchange. I am sure that I could find some interesting stuff for you. And skip the draw for me. I am still working from my stash!

  8. It has been awhile since I checked in here and what a great day it turned out to be to do so! What a wonderful collection of fibers and fabrics! Inspiration galore!

  9. The colours and textures give you inspiration alone. I would love to try all of these in some nuno.
