Fleece To Fantastic: Student Creations

Wow, so it’s been over two months since I last blogged. Oops. I have been so busy with setting up websites, making art, working on commissions, and more that I somehow just lost track of blogging! I will write a catch up post with all my exciting news later in the week, but today I wanted to finally share pictures of what the students in my From Fleece To Fantastic class this past spring created. The class was very small, but that meant I was able to help everybody as much as they needed and talk with them on a more personal level than I would have been able to with a large class. I’d originally planned to have a “starter project” where everybody basically did the same thing, but the students pretty much dove right into whatever they had in their minds to create, which is just how I like it! I loved seeing what everybody created!

One student create this flower, which they were going to use as a decoration or attach to a bag. I really love the swirling effect of the red turning into the orange center.

She also made this lovely flower pin. I love the shape of the leaves and the speckles on the center of the flower.

Another student made the adorable cherries to attach to her bag that she was decorating with handmade wool items.

Here is a picture of the whole bag. It has felted knitting, wet felting, and now needle felting!

She also did some needle felted appliqué on a piece of wool felt that she later on sewed into a bag. When she completed the bag she emailed me a picture. I love the way she mixed the colors in the petals and sewed the beads in the center to match the zipper pull. The stem of the flower also swirls around the bottom of the bag to the other side where it sprouts a leaf with a little lady bug sitting on it.

I am so happy to have had a wonderful class with such creative students. I am looking forward to having another group of great students in my felting workshop this fall (details to come!).Ta ta for now, until my news packed post later in the week!
