FeltUnited 2010 Exhibit

The FeltUnited 2010 exhibit is now online!  Check out the website, http://www.feltunited.com/  to see all the creative and inspiring work that felters around the world did for the 2nd International Day of Felt.  If you look hard enough, you might see some of mine in there too.

And while you're on the FeltUnited homepage, you may want to take note of FeltUnited Day 2011 and start thinking about what you're going to do that day (if you're a felter). The color scheme for next year is blue, purple, red.  I love blue and purple and I can't wait to get started!

Here are a couple hats I made the other day.  Still experimenting...

This is a Finn wool hat embellished with silk.  I love the Finn wool for felting! It makes a sturdy hat that holds its form well. The neck tie is made from the brim trimmings. 

Oh darn, blogspot won't let me upload the Black Iset Shetland wool hat.  I'll save that for another day. It's very thin, only two layers of Shetland.  The beautiful lilac Romney/Targhee roving I had planned as the outside layer didn't want to felt so I ripped it off.  That's what I love about felting, you can always change your mind and go with the direction it takes you.

  2. Thanks Kelly. It was my first time felting with Finn wool and the shrinkage rate was more than I anticipated. I only wish hats looked half as good on me as they do on that head. :)
