Pandagirl’s Year in Review 2016

Pandagirl’s Year in Review 2016

I hope everyone had a nice holiday and are ready for the New Year.

It’s almost the end of 2016 and looking back on the things I’ve done, there seems to be a few themes.

I did a lot of natural dyeing.  Avocado skins, pits and the combo.

Of course, there were also plenty of samples during the year including using the needle felting machine to felt some unfeltable fabrics.

A big thank you to Cathy Wycliff for her post on weaving and felting; my sister Carol Olson for sharing her new sheep with us;  Nada for sharing her workshop experience in Slovenia; Zara for her posts on Felting on a Trampoline and her Yak, Mongolian, Churro and Zwartables samples; Leonor for her soap tutorial and Terri Simon on sharing her projects from Kristy Kun’s class.

It was a great year for me in terms of learning new things and doing some recycling.  How was your 2016 year of fibers?

Happy New Year and Happy Felting in 2017!

 

 

 

2nd Quarter Challenge 2016

2nd Quarter Challenge 2016

Remember the credit card wallet disaster I told you about earlier this year?

I decided I would recycle part of this piece into an earbud case for the 2nd Quarter Challenge. So I cut it up.

I used a blanket stitch to sew it together and finish off the edges.

Then I added a snap as a closure.

Its a little bigger than needed, but I figure I’ll find something else to stuff in there if necessary. Perhaps a few business cards.  I feel better knowing I’ve been able to use some of the material for something useful rather than sitting in a pile.

If you’ve done something for the 2nd Quarter Challenge, be sure to post it on the forum! Or contact one of us to write a blog about it!
