Today I Made… Felt Circles

Felt Circles 2

Once I start needle felting, I can’s stop it. Yes, I still poke my fingers along the way, but no, it’s so addictive! Read More

Simple Needle Felt Earrings Tutorial

Yes, the felting season is back! I checked my blog (it’s very handy, isn’t it?) and the last felting project I’ve done was cat-shaped pouch back in April. In order to get back my felting technique, I made a simple pair of earrings with felt balls. After about five minutes of felting, my fingers seemed to remember how it worked, but it involved some finger poking, too :) Anyway, if you are new to needle felting, I think making felt balls would be the best first project. And if you have ready-made felt balls, you can just skip to step 5. Read More

It will show you a basic way of making wet felted pouch (which can easily be applied to making a bag), and how to embroider features with needle felting technique. The tutorial is long (sorry!) but each process is easy, so hope you enjoy making one! Read More

Wet Felting:
Needle Case for Cat Lovers

When I woke up this morning, some words popped up in my head: a cat prototype. A CAT PROTOTYPE? Is it an inspiration? Is it a desire? I didn’t understand it but the words didn’t leave me for quite some time. OK, I thought, if you (the voice in my head) wanted a cat prototype, I’d give you one!

I made a simple, cat prototype-template (without even knowing what it was for) with a plastic sheet, then used it for wet felting. When I was about to add features on the face, another voice told me (yeah, I’m a bit special, innit?) that it has to be a ‘grumpy cat’. Read More

Tiny Wet Felted Bowls

How do you store/organise your jewellery? For ever-growing collections of accessories and craft materials and trinkets, I made these tiny bowls as prototypes; I still haven’t decided if I should make more of them in the same size, or make in different sizes. Maybe I should make them into ones like Matryoshka…? But if I think about it, I actually have a lot of bowls, in different sizes and materials, to the point that l could call them a ‘collection’. Damn… I know, I cannot NOT collect things…

Wet & Needle Felting Tutorial:
Embroidered Coaster

Wet & Needle Felting Tutorial: Embroidered Coaster, top

As the summertime has arrived (at last!), I wanted to make something that was spring-ish. Why not welcome the new season with new house items? So, today’s tutorial will show you how to make a basic piece of wet felted coaster, and how to embroider it with needle felting technique. You can add patterns or decorations by wet felting, of course, but I prefer needle felting technique because it can create more detailed design. The tutorial is long and it has a lot of process (sorry!) but once you get started, it should be pretty easy. Read More

Felt Ball Camera Strap

Felt Ball Camera Strap 1

Since I started this blog, my camera became a huge part of my everyday life. I always wanted to give it a ‘face lift’ somehow, but couldn’t think of how. Then an idea popped up in my head; my camera definitely deserves a new strap! I love the result, and can’t wait to go for a shooting trip! Read More

Let’s spell out, shall I? Project: Day 8

 Let’s spell out, shall I? Project: Day 8

It’s day 8 of the Let’s spell out, shall I? project, and this is the final word for the project: good. Well, I must confess that it didn’t go as I’ve planed; it was supposed to be a joined-up font, but it proved to be too difficult… Shame, but I’ll give it a try one more time in the future. Read More
