More felt incorporating up-cycled materials

I’ve been continuing to work combing off cuts of silk and mohair into my base wool while felting. My intention today had been to felt all morning and stitch all afternoon but then I realised that one of my New Year’s resolutions was to keep updating my Big Cartel store so that process ate into my time too!!!  Deciding the price for the little embroidered pouches I uploaded was not the easiest, finally I settled on E18 each, only time will tell if this was the correct descision. Anyway, here is a picture of some embellishment laid out prior to felting and hopefully by tomorrow afternoon I’ll have cut, stitched and be able to reveal the finished pieces!

    Good morning Nicola,

    Yes, I’ll probably be doing much of the same…stitching…perhaps a handmade quilt or something quick and easy;-)))

    Will look forward to seeing your finished work tomorrow. Hmmmm…perhaps we’ll be able to go to the Cushendale Mill when I’m with you…Nothing like a little shameless pitch for a fun day out and about. Perhaps you’ll even let me drive us there;-))) With my marvelous sense of direction and not knowing how to drive a manual transmission, should make for lots of fun and excitement!!!!

    Big hugs,
    Dawn

    What difference do you find between Etsy and Big Cartel? I am thinking of ditching Etsy because I don’t find it sells much at all. There is a new Irish online shop starting very soon called http://www.swoop.ie and I am hoping that will be good.
