My online Surface Design in Felting class of Fiona
has reached it's third week,
and it's no surprise :
I LOVE IT !
BTW, there is very good news
for all of you who thought you had to wait till the end of summer
for Fiona to do a second run of her class :
the next run starts in April
(till half May)
For this third week
there weren't as many samples to make as week 1 and 2
So I took the chance to make a piece with
three little techniques in it :
bumps, an enclosed big glass nugget and seed beads.
All of that in a head band
or you could say
(is that a Mad Hatter or what ?!)
When I made the (first) resist I forgot to enlarge my design ...
(even being experienced doesn't prevent you from doing stupid things :-( !)
so then I made a new (bigger) one.
I used two layers merino in blues
One thing : with all these special bits you must do some slow felting !
Despite my calculations the piece stayed too big,
so I cut it in the back
now I can adjust it to the right size.
and the back
(I am definately gonna wear it)
