Making some progress and free give away reminder

I finished my triangle scarf this week.
The wool side
The silk side
There wasn’t that much shrinkage as it is very cobwebby on the wool side.
I finished the prefelt for the building on a Picture I am working on.
I cut some circles to make little earbud pouches. Sorry I can’t right now remember who had this great idea to use scrap piece for felt for this. I want to keep my square credit card reader in one.
I made 2 pieces specially to cut up.
I love the way the silk throwsters waist seems to hover on the felt even though it is well attached. The blue one isn’t firm enough so I will rewet it and full it some more.
I also started 2 more. I laid the wool out first. The first one I used on large piece of silk on top . I added the roving so you could see the colour. I wanted something a little more “masculine”.
The other one I want more texture from the silk so I had to wet the back ground so the silk would stay where and how I put it. I then added some synthetic yarn and put tiny amounts of wool to bridge it and hold it down. I really like how it looks so I think I will make a scarf in the same design. It is very dark in the picture because it is wet.
So that’s been my week in felt. I hope you have been able to play with some fibers too. Don’t forget to enter the draw for a free hat class.

Lots of felt you’ve been working on Ann! It’s all very nice but I really like silk throwsters waste too. I did edit your post so that Teri’s link was clickable. Hope that’s OK.
Thanks Ruth, It looks like more than it is. I need to get working on some bigger things. Thanks for fixing that. I meant to go back and check it and forgot.
I love the scarf Ann – it’s so delicately pretty.
I like the masculine colours for the felt – great idea – and I’d like to see the last one when it’s dry.
I wonder what building you are working on?
Thanks Lyn. I will put them up when they are felted and dry. they are for the buildings in a picture. http://feltingandfiberstudio.com/2016/06/08/an-idea-for-a-project/
Beautiful scarf, perfect for summer breezy evenings. I like the masculine colors as well. I had recently made an earbud case, I like that yours will be round. I’m looking forward to the city scene. Love the bold colors of the prefelt.
Thanks Marilyn. I need to make a bigger rectangular one for my phone charger. I don’t know how long it will take to picture done. I can be very slow.
I think the hovering silk might be because you’ve chosen opposite colours, Ann, they’re bouncing off my screen! I know what you mean though, it’s one of my favourite embellishment fibres. You’ve got a lot done this week 🙂
maybe. but thins usually look like they have sunk into he felt. I love the way these silk curls up.
