fish, fish oh lucky fish!

The last ..for the moment of my felting frenzy.
Lucky fish. A touch of shimmer in their scales and away they swim...

Here is another group of brooches for Christmas selling.

felted brooches

Hi there, I have been playing again and having fun with my felting machine. I have even tidied my studio...very productive day LOL! These little brooches are made on the embellisher and then free machined - just LOVE how easy that machine is to use and how in combination with my sewing machine one can create some neat things. I know there is a whole world of ideas out there just waiting to be explored in this process......so I had better get to it.
Thanks all who have left comments on my blog...the threads of life that unite us! -Linda.

shoe fun

Okay, I said I have been playing with painting shoes - got some leather textile medium from Di at www.fabricaddictions.com and some yummy pigment powders so I had to have a little fun. Now remember these are OLD shoes and I am experimenting with them. Saying that, however, I must say it was fun and I will do more after I have worn these shoes a few times to see how it lasts. A couple I have used gel medium over - not sure yet if that is a good idea or not.! ! pair I did one shoe with gel med. and 1 without - so I have a test case......myth busters look out!!!!!

This next pic shows how i have gone back over with the needle felting machine on the reverse and pulled some texture back to the right side. Starting to get the look I want - lots of texture and interest!

Finally finding a minute to post LOL! Where does the year go?
I have another class running with Classheaven http://ClassHeaven.com. The Owl and the pussycat - needle felting fun. I think it is really useful to have other crafts to compliment my dollmaking...and yours!! It is much nicer to be able to place something you have also made into the arms of the doll......well, that is what I like to do. What do you think?
