Lost and Missing in Leduc Walmart parking lot on March 9/2012
I only got to wear it for two weeks. Boo Hoo!!!!!
I finished it and can wear it for winter. What winter? We have been so warm this year but we did get snow last night. I think I will wear it today. I have added this post to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it Friday, And to Magic Onions Friday's Natural's Table and Confessions of a Fabric Addict Can I get a Whoop-Whoop?? (has a give way too). Give them a look for there are so many great ideas. Magic Onions has some great felt projects that I just love. I may have to try making some needle felted mushrooms someday.
I planned on making this sometime back. I think it was two years ago when I dyed the wool for it. I got most of it done with needle felting but I love the look of wet felting so I also did some wet felting to finish the look off. It will hold up better too. I love the way the edge is a little waver now.
Here is the detail. I used a loosely spun single yarn for the stems. I made spirals of two pinks for my flowers. The details were needle felted into place on the dry turquoise wool. I worked on the details with my surface design group, we met last Friday. We worked on our embellishing machines together in Jan and then in Feb I did my wet felting. I helped one of the ladies make her first wet felted scarf. I need to see it dry now. We are planning to wet felt hats next month. I will have to take pictures and show you.
Here is a photo before I wet felted it. The photo may not show it well but the fibres are still a bit fussy and it is not felted enough yet. The process of wet felting really finished it and the fibres will not pile so much now.
What a beautiful piece, Cathy! May it keep you warm for many winters to come! :-)ReplyDelete
Very Pretty! Love the colors you choose.ReplyDelete
I love seeing all the different things you are doing. That scarf looks so pretty, and soft and warm. Perfect for the kind of wet, cold, damp day we are having here.ReplyDelete
You are an amazing woman! When do you get any time to sleep? I think you should wear the scarf to the next Guild meeting and not plan on taking it home. The scarf in its entirety is absolutely gorgeous!ReplyDelete
looks great Cathy. Well done. That great blue will show up beautifully on a snowy winter day. Thanks for making the world a brighter place.ReplyDelete
The scarf is so lovely!ReplyDelete
It is a gorgeous scarf Cathy- I love the pink flowers and the wonderful blue color. I have never worked with wool felting. It sounds like a very interesting technique.ReplyDelete
You are a lady of many talents...
It is beautiful!!ReplyDelete
Have you looked out the window yet this morning? We. Have. Snow. in very large quantities. Fashion wish granted!ReplyDelete
Love those colorsReplyDelete
How beautiful! Love the colors and the pattern, what a wonderful scarf! :)ReplyDelete
I love it!ReplyDelete
That is beautiful! Great job! Sounds like you're having the same kind of winter as we are here in Minnesota. I think we're still in for some winter though, and you'll get a chance to wear that beauty yet! ;o)ReplyDelete
What a beautiful scarf! This almost makes me want to take up another craft!! Whoop whoop!!ReplyDelete
It is lovely, cheers MarieReplyDelete
That is lovely, Cathy. Gorgeous colour, eye catching design. I hope you get some nice cold weather to show it off.ReplyDelete
did you use pre-felt for the base or felt from scratch ?
Beautiful scarf. I hope you get some wear out of it before spring hits.ReplyDelete
This is lovely. I have felted in the washing machine and in the sink, small items. I have never needle felted, I've seen it done but what exactly do you mean by wet felting? Can you please tell me a little more? Your scarf is wonderful and I love the flower embellishments...ReplyDelete
very very pretty!ReplyDelete
thanks for linking up to finish it up Friday!
This scarf is gorgeous! I am really needing to make myself a beautiful scarf for winter...but since our winter seems to be ending, I'll have time before it comes around again (I hope!)ReplyDelete
