Kim is an artist who makes stunning items using felt.
Visit her Etsy shop, Vilt à la Kim – it’s filled with so many masterpieces! And here is her blog.
You will also find a lot of information on how to make felt.
Some days ago, I received a message from her, saying that I had been the 400th person who hearted her shop.
Look at the nice suprise she sent me to celebrate! A wonderful felted soap!
Thank you, Kim!
I just discovered that Northeast Fiberart Center has launched its 3rd Biennal Fiber Challenge.
As stated on the website this challenge is an invitation or call to create something, given a defined set of yarns/fibers that you probably wouldn’t put together on your own (hence, the challenge) thru means of knitting, crocheting, tatting, weaving, felting, hooking, tapestry, bobbin lace, or any other fiber craft by which you are able to transform the set of yarns/fibers into a finished product for which you may win a great prize!
It promises to be very amusing and I’ll try to participate.
Making felted balls is one of my favourite pastimes when I’m in deep need of inspiration.
However, getting inspired can be a long and consuming process – with the obvious consequence of ending with my room full of colored little balls that I don’t really need anymore.
That’s why I’m now getting involved in a new inspirational pastime: decorating them
Here are some I embellished with hot fix crystals:
Now I’m waiting for next step to come: find a reasonable use for all of them.
