Felted animals

Last Fridayeve I got inspiration and felt the urge (finally) to felt myself an Ant. So Saturday I sat in my studio and started with making this: 

viltalakim, vilt, wol, wool, wetfelting, natvilten

A pen next to it, so you can get a clue about its real seize. 

I never made anythign like this before. Massiv 3D wetfelt, It turned out nice and quicker as thought (or was I so focussed I didn't notice time passing by???? )

viltalakim, mier, ant, vilt, wol, felt, wool

The Ant is a symbol for a hard worker, soicial in a  group, together and patience. It is also a very stong insect as it can carry up to 50 times its own weight.

I also wanted to felt a goldfish so also that one I made...

maybee a little bigger as I should have made, but I love it anyway...

vis, fish, vilt, felt,filz, viltalakim,, wol, wool, wolle

I descided some embroidery would make it even better.

The Goldfish: 

The gold fish brings good luck in the form of tranquility, wisdom and long life. It is one among the eight sacred symbols of the Buddha where they represent fertility, abundance and harmony with the flow of life.

I think I wil turn my studio into a felted animals zoo ;-)

Hoi KIm

Ik heb jou ontmoet op de brocante markt in Mechelen,ik ben werkzaam bij de Ezelstal Hans&Grietje.
Jouw verhaal heeft mij ontzettend geroerd,je blijft in mijn gedachten en ik hoop dat ik jou en je dochter nog een keer mag tegenkomen.

There is only one kind of magic,and this is “doing”.

Liefs en alle goeds Pascalle

Doing is inderdaad de magie. We zullen elkaar vast eens ontmoeten. Het wereldje waar ik nu in zit is niet zo groot….
