Fiber Friday

Felted Pillows
Even when my time is short, I love taking pictures. A friend suggested that I participate in Wordless Wednesdays (photos only, no words), and it occurred to me that this would be a great way to keep up blogging without having to spend a lot of time or thought in composing an entry (hence, the recent frog and water lily photo).
I've decided to begin Fiber Friday as well, where I post either works in progress or recently completed projects. Sometimes I may not explain much about the product, but feel free to comment or ask questions! I've recently been making pillows from felt, and am having a lot of fun with it. (By the way, you can check out our upcoming felting class schedule here- they're filling up quickly!)

I was just going to show the above pillow in progress and complete, but really liked the image of swirls on this one and it led me to playing around with the design in PhotoShop. Which effect do you like best?

So do you needle felt then wet felt to complete those designs? The pillows are beautiful, I love the swirls.

Loco Lindy said...

Yes, I do needle felt and then wet felt the entire thing- this is working really well for me!

Love the pillow! I really need to start felting. The Mezzotint is my favorite photoshop effect for this project.

Thank you for sharing and can't wait to see more from you in Fiber Arts Friday.
