TAD Day 22: Button bookmarks

2014 Day 11

TAD Day 11: Felted dryer ball/inadvertant cat toy

I spent the day home sick today, so I knew I needed a project that required little concentration. Wool felting is pretty mindless when you are just making a ball.  These are supposed to be a chemical-free alternative to dryer

TAD Day 6: Felt ornament

It seems each year, there is something that looks so much better in person than I can capture in a photograph.  I’m actually pretty happy with how this looks, and could see doing more of them.  They are about 3

Day 1 – Nuno felted brooch

 The first picture is the “before.” It’s a small piece of nuno felting I made last week. It was rather hastily done and felt is kind of globby. I experimented with beading into the felt.

Day 27, 28 & 29

This is it! The end! I successfully completed my fourth year of Thing-a-Day, this time with a theme. I’m really proud of myself. For the last three days I made this simple trio of flowers. If you’ve enjoyed my work

Day 23- Large Teal Flower

Yet another flower where I just kind of winged it. It will be interesting to see how all these come together in my next flower crown. This one is the largest I’ve made so far, its slightly smaller than my hand.

Day 19 A Bow and a Fresh Face

My wonky girl got her bow today! Used a really long piece of the dress fabric and played with wrapping and tying and such and ta-da! Now she’s fancy. :) Her face faded from all the man-handling putting her together

Drawing on the techniques I’ve been using for all the other flowers this month I improvised these two violets for days 11 &12. Violets happen to be the February flower and stand for faithfulness, humility and chastity.

I bought an old wooden box at the local thirft store for 99 cents on Monday. It looked like a flatware or silverware box, but it was dirty and unlined. I cleaned it up, and lined in in blue felt.
