I just realized, I was so excited to show what I made in my class and wrote this post this morning without saying where I took the class! It was with the Edmonton Weavers Guild. The link to their site is: http://edmontonweavers.org/
My instructor was Brenda and she was awesome! I shared the day with some awesome women whom I really hope to see again.
I took a felting class yesterday, all I dreamt about last night was felting. I don't want to work today, I want to FELT!
I enjoy felting so much, I do not feel like quilting, and I have a ton of quilt projects to make. Not good!
Here's what I made just yesterday, on my very first day learning to felt.
A decorative ball, three buttons, a purse, a hot pad, and three wallets. The buttons we made first, then the ball, then the hot pad and finally the purse. When I got home, I fed my monsters, made supper for Mr Hunter and I, did a quick (and incomplete) kitchen clean and then made the three wallets. If it wasn't so late, I would have kept going.I woke up at 5 to use the lu, and I seriously considered staying up to felt before work.
The wallets have a single pouch, but I figured/ designed how to put in more so you will be able to have your phone, cards and money separate. Too late for the three, but I will try to make one with the extra pockets to see if my design will work.
Do you guys felt? I was thinking some critters could be cool, if you have made some and have tips/ advise you want to share, I'm all ears!
