after a lot of preparation for maker faire, an intense weekend (i won two editor’s choice awards!) and a week of custom orders, it is good to get back to regular ole stress reducing sculpting. i fixed mr. pull toy chicken this morning after he was punched, pulled, bitten (seriously), and tossed by his admirers. a new tight layer of clean beautiful wool and he is ready for market.
my Etsy shop is finally open! I will post him tonight.
i have gotten many requests for beginner needle felting kits, so i finally got some together for maker faire. i have a baby robot, a puffer fish, cupcakes, and a baby dino kit.
My booth! i really meant to take more pictures, but time flew by and lots of people wanted to learn how to needle felt.
i spent an extra day in austin looking around in vintage boutiques for things i can add to my sculpting. i found this porcelain doll arm and many other goodies that i will show off later.
on the way back, i started four heads in the car. some days faces come easy to me, and some days i cant figure out how to do them. very strange. so when i am able to do one, i usually try to make four or five.
this is the beginning of a big head bunny made from one of the heads i started in the car. the arm is not attached yet, but you get the idea.
back to work!
