Getting Ready for the Guild Exhibition and Sale.

I have a show coming up in November and I am not ready yet but I’m working on it. I made 2 hats.  Here I have added the embellishment yarn to one of them  and I am ready to flip it. I have covered the yarn in a very fine layer of wool.

Here I have cut out the resist on the other hat and refolded it to roll the “seam” flat.

Here it is after fulling so show you the shrinkage. It’s a little hard to see the top of the resist but if you look carefully its there

And both ready to be rinsed. While they are still wet I will put folds in the long pointy part and sew them tight so they will dry properly. They are soaking in their rinse water at the moment.

I am teaching a slipper class on the week end but I can’t find my samples so I am making a pair of booty slippers for my grandson, so I can show the class.

I think I will do a sample pair for myself using the ear pattern that Nada showed us https://feltingandfiberstudio.com/2014/03/03/felted-slipper-tutorial-using-ear-shaped-resist-by-nada-v/

Have you tried any new patterns lately?

    I do like those hats you make Ann! Your grandson’s slippers will look good with that pattern – good luck with the class.

    I haven’t tried any new patterns lately in felting. But have been doing some new designs in machine embroidery. I’ll post a few of those soon. Looking forward to seeing the finished hats 🙂

    I haven’t tried anything new lately, though I think we’re doing nuno flowers at the well-being centre tomorrow, I think I’ve only done 1 or two flowers before. I love the hats and boots 🙂

    I’ve been wanting to try a hat, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. I look forward to seeing how yours turn out. Love the booties, great for a little boy!

    Wow you have been very busy Ann, the booties look like they are going to be really cute, I hope we can see your grandson modelling them 🙂

    • I don’t fee like I have got much done lately. I will try to get a picture with them on him. If he is as cooperative as he was for me drawing around his foot for the size, I don’t think I will get one.
