Holiday Felting

This week I've been felting fiber art for our local Waterworks Visual Art Center. Up until now I've primarily leaned toward pretty spring colors for my Wet-felted Flower Pins, but look how festive these poinsettia pins turned out! I love the variegated red wool fibers paired with a hint of shimmer the Angelina fibers add, and I used gold metallic and cotton threads to sew the wool bead centers to add a bit more sparkle for the holidays. I'm also posting a photo of my Wet-felted Flower class from Houston, sadly this is the only one I have and I took it with my phone so it's not very good quality. If any of my students from my Houston Wet-felted Flower class have a better photo (I know some of you took pictures!), please email me one so I can post a better picture, all the flowers turned out gorgeous! My lame little picture does not do them justice.

Also, I'm posting a picture of my newest Nuno-felted Scarf, this also made its way to Waterworks, I love the colors and ruffled textrue of this one! Great for the holidays or all year round.
