Felted Projects

FELTING has to be one of our favourite crafting hobbies at the moment.   My interest in felting began about 8 years ago when I found a great starter kit from Salt Spring Island.  In fact, Big C was a tiny baby when I completed it and she has it stashed away in her bedroom somewhere.  I also have a fascination with anything Waldorf.  I love the philosophy behind this educational approach and it’s close ties with child psychology and child development (stemming back to my undergrad years in psychology which I so fondly remember 🙂 ).   We also share our passion for felting with many of our close friends (both homeschoolers and nonhomeschoolers) and in fact we meet on a monthly basis at a special farm lady’s house to inspire one another and advance our skills in felting.  It is so much fun!   Here is a sample of some of my projects…

I’m not going to include any of the kids projects in this post.  Instead I would like to do one focusing soley on their creations.   Big C has created a beautiful mermaid and a mushroom but I haven’t taken photos of her stuff  yet.

This last photo is our nature table which got completely out of control because I let the girls basically take over!  That’s ok we’ll clean it up and get it ready for the change in seasons…

On a different note.  I cannot contain the amount of sorrow that I’m feeling today.  I’m sending out positive energies into the Universe for everyone suffering from one form of cancer or another.  Namaste
