Yesterday at Beadzo, we broke out the felt needles, Swarovski bling and seed beads and began embellishing a sweet little felt purse. This is Kaja's. She spent the workshop needlefelting the surface and will bead embroider it in the next class (Sept 24). Should you decide to join them for the fun, I'll bring felt needles, Beadzo will have white felt purses for sale and all the beads and bling you'll want. I'll coach you through your embellishment techniques. These make great gifts too. (This is one of the projects I taught in Japan. Tulip Co even sells kits for needlefelting on felt purses!)
Today Fran came to work in the studio and we ended up making more felt scarf samples for the Bead Gallery workshops coming up Columbus Weekend in October. If you register for that workshop, I assure you it will be a great way to spend a holiday!
And it is a lightweight and fashionable way to keep the chill off your neck all autumn!
Fran was dazzled by how quick and smoothly the fulling process was acheived using the Turbo Felting Board. (Just between us, I think she was skeptical until she did it for herself. Imagine Fran skeptical.) She was pleased to hear that I ordered the TFBs precut this time so we didn't have to do it ourselves. Whew.
