The 2013 Kentucky Fiber Festival was AWESOME! I got so much wool and made a few friends along the way. I found a bunch of wet felting wool at a booth called “Dyed in the Wool”. I was so excited that I went home and got straight to work. Late that night the fox bag was born. I took the bag back with me to the festival the next day to show the ladies who sold me the wool the bag I had made with their wool and they wrote about it on their webpage: http://www.basicallybenita.com/
Another cool thing I found out about while at the festival is Fiber Mills. Well I sent all that wool I bought from the ladies at “Dyed in the Wool” out to a Fiber Mill called Ohio Valley Natural Fibers http://www.ovnf.com/ They are going to turn all that lovely wool into batts for me so it is easier to work with when I make them into bags. So excited to get it back from them!!!
I spent a lot of money but I am fulled stocked and ready for a long summer of felting. Which is good because I have the fall and craft fair season coming up!
I whipped up this necklace last night, it took a long time to make each chain! But I am so happy with the way it came out, I got the idea of doing a chunky chain necklace from a Pin of a jade link necklace on Pinterest. I though “hey I bet I can do that with felt!” it was a experiment that worked out, which is good because some of my experiments lately haven’t been panning out.
Rhonda Bohart took these shot on a very cold day, but they came out great!
Merino wool Neon Rainbow Necklace…need I say more?
I love the colors in this rainbow. I am calling it my vintage rainbow, because the colors are kinda faded and remind me of the colors you might find in vintage prints.
Merino wool Galaxy Bag.
My photographer Rhonda Bohart is moving to Alaska, so I will be losing her soon. This was a pic from one of her shoots. The scarf if BFL and done in the big hole lattice style.
Merino wool Rainbow Bag.
There is this wonderful etsy shop that sells wool batts and roving that she hand dyes, and her specialty is rainbows. She does such beautiful bright colors. Her shop is Zauberzeug. I got the wool for this bag from her.
New ruffle scarf in bright summer colors! Me and my husband went to the horse farm to do these shots and this black horse was so friendly the whole time we were shooting. He is giving me a horse-hug in this pic.
