Hello Makers! West County Fiber Arts in Sebastopol will be hosting once again a felting class! I hope you can join me on this new journey. I will be teaching a Hat Making Class using a resist that will allow to create shapes, textures and to add your personal and special touch to your project. I will show how to design a hat from scratch. We will be starting by making our own pattern using our own measurements. It’s going to be a lot of fun!
You will be surprised at how many options there are when designing a hat. Lately, I’ve been immerse into hat making just because it is fun and to also have a few examples to show to my students for inspiration.
This is a hat that was ALMOST a failure! It was meant to be a rose, but instead it became something weird that started to look like a lump. Or perhaps a nipple?
I didn’t liked it at all! It looked somehow disturbing. So I decided to perform surgery with a pair of scissors.
This is much, much better. I’m thinking of adding some design elements with a sewing machine.
As I said… This can be a journey! If you are interested on taking my class, follow the link below for more information and registration.
This rug can fly. Would you trust me?
It also crawls…

Every time I have a new project I try to learn something new from the process… Or at least I try to teach myself something new. There is always a story behind each piece.
Nuno Felted Coat: Wensleydale Wool, Merino, Uzbekistan Silk, Deer Antler Buttons with Indigo.
I made a beautiful collar for another Mother of the Bride. She lives in Maryland and it happens that she also raises Border Leicesters which have been used to create the collar below:
The brown collar was made with Wensleydale lambswool from JoAnn in Occidental, CA and then dipped in an Indigo Vat to get a blue background.
I swear I can’t ever get enough of these curls.
This dress isn’t quite finished yet. Still needs color, straps and some adjustments here and there. Hmm… I might even add some beads to it. But, I’ve been missing blogging. It has been a fun and busy summer with some up and downs. Heck, if it wasn’t for the downs, I wouldn’t be having the ups, right? Nothing too extreme, but when it comes to computers problems, it can turn your life quite miserable, especially when all that I want to do, is be outdoors.
By the way, the jewelry has been designed by moi. I’ve been having a ride making jewelry again. It deserves a later post.
Lastly, yesterday, my friend Charmaine and I went to visit my friend Mimi and came back home with a nice fleece with lots of curls and I want so badly to make something totally different this weekend…
