If you’re going to celebrate your birthday, we think you should celebrate all week long. That’s what we’re going to do this week here at The Felting and Fiber Studio. Our “birthday” is November 20th. Our first post was November 20, 2011 and it’s hard to believe it’s been three years since we began. Our plans for the week include four separate give away posts that we hope you’ll spread the word about. Each of us will be doing our regular post for the week and then the following day will be a give away. So stop back all week to join in the birthday celebration and perhaps win something fabulous! We’ll be here in the background humming “Happy Birthday to Us” and dancing about in our birthday suits. Thank goodness you can’t see us!
This past week I have been working on making some more felted items to put in the store before the holiday season. I have several of my felted phone sleeves still available but because the phones keep getting bigger and bigger, many people’s new phones will not fit in the old size phone case.
The new size I just made is on the left and the old style which fits my out of date phone is on the right. Hopefully, between the two sizes, everyone’s phone will fit.
This one is purple and green with a bit of red. The photo color is a bit off, so think more towards purple for the background.
And this one is made with a base of blue wool and hand dyed cheesecloth on top.
I also needed some more coffee cuff/sleeves. Here’s one in blue with a few orange/red accents.
One with the same cheesecloth as the phone sleeve. I like how the base wool really makes a difference in the color of the cheesecloth on top.
And this one is red violet with a cheesecloth flower. I hadn’t tried one of these flowers before but it worked out fine. I just wadded up a piece of cheesecloth and made a wool center. It felted right in, no problem.
Have you been making anything for holiday sales or gifts? We’d love to see what you’re making over at the forum. And don’t forget to stop back by tomorrow for the first give away.
