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???? )

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...

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 ;-)

Yesterday was a day on which I had an important meeting  about what I want in the future .  I looked forward to this meeting and also not… ….  But I went and it was okay (ofcourse).  Driving back home I started thinking and worried ing again.  So at home I wanted to get my mind off that worry and started felting… And as wednesdayevening I prepared some soaps to be felted. This is what my table looked like:

soap, zeep, vilten, wol, wool, felting, wetfelt, colorfull, kleurrijk, cross, kruis, Filz, viltalakim

And what better medicin there is for worries to disappaer, then felting :) ??? So here’s the result after an evening felting…

I have been working on a new pair  felted slippers for my daughter. she wanted to have the same like Ingermaaike made for me but in purple and pink. So I made a resist and started with grey “bergschaap” wool and let her decide about the last 2 layers.  Ik ben eindelijk begonnen aan het maken van vilten sloffen voor mijn dochtertje. Ze wilde namelijk dezelfde soort sloffen hebben als die ik van Ingermaaike heb gekregen. Maar dan wel in paars en rose. Dus heb ik twee malletjes gemaakt,  bedekt met bergschaapwol en de laatste twee laagjes mocht ze zelf dan bepalen.

“Mummy, half pink and half purple please:) and I want hearts on them one must be pink and the other one should be purple. ” So I did while she was sitting beside me and felting a roll of which she wanted to make beads off.  After felting it was time to open them by cutting.  “Mama half paars en half rose aub en ik wil hartjes erop de ene  helemaal rose en de andere helemaal paars” Zo gezegd zo gedaan en Janna zat lekker naast mij een rol te vilten die ze in stukken ging knippen om vilten kralen van te maken. Toen de wol al goed begon the vilten  was het tijd om een opening te knippen……

“Mummy that hole is way too small, my feet will never fit in there!!! “Mama , dat gat is echt veeeeeel te klein voor mijn voeten, die passen er niet in hoor!”

We will see I said. “Take a little chair and come and sit ON the table with that chair” On the table???? ” “ Yes on the table so I can reach your feet more easily…. ” This is fun mummy!!” I felted the slippers around her feet using warm water not hot:) , rinsed them and let dry.  We zullen wel zien, wacht maar eens af. Pak maar een klein krukje en kom maar OP de tafel zitten ermee. “Op de tafel???, mag dat dan???” Ja want dan kom ik er beter bij zonder te bukken……  Dus de sloffen verder afgevilt met haar voeeten erin . Natuurlijk heb ik de sloffen wel even in warm water gedaan zodat ze geen koude voeten kreeg.  Toen ze klaar waren uitgespoeld en laten drogen.

So yesterday I decided to add some leather to the bottom of teh slippers to prevent them to be slippery and the slippers last longer (but I  bet she will outgrow them fast)  She sew a blanket stitch to the edge of one slipper, the other she will do tomorrow…. Today I added some “pearls”to them to get princess  like slippers, What do you think of them ??? I hope she likes the beads. Dus gisteren heb ik er een stukje leerondergenaaid, zodat de sloffen niet meer zo glad waren en ze ook langer mee gaan(alhoewel ik denk dat ze er eerder is uitgegroeid als dat ze versleten zijn) . Janna heeft toen zelf een slof helemaal afgewerkt met een fetonsteek, de ander zal ze morgen wel doen denk ik. Van morgen heb ik er wat kraaltje aan vastgenaaid. Ik hoop dat ze het leuk vind!

Yesterday I felted together with a friend whom wanted to make a felted vase. I forgot to make pictures of it sorry. Meanwhile I felted another “wrap-hat with felted button” and after my friend went home I started working at a scarf.. Gisteren heb ik samen met een vriendin gevilt. Zij wilde een gevillte vaas maken en ik heb weer een “wikkelhoed” gemaakt. ‘ s Avonds heb ik nog een start gemaakt met een nieuwe sjaal.

I used the silk, wool and wool yarn I dyed  some weeks ago with Eucalypthus. Remember? I think it came out wonderfull. Ik heb hiervoor de zijde, wol en garen gebruikt die ik met eucalypthus geverfd heb een paar weken geleden.

 After finishing this scarf today I started decorating my creativ space with my felted items as I needed to have a picture of me inbetween my felted goodies:) Too bad my husband has vibrating hands… most pictures were blurry, sigh…  So I tried to take pictures with the self timer. Press the button and rush back to a nice spot. What do you think did I do alright??? Nadat ik de sjaal vandaag had afgevilt, ben ik begonnen mijn werkruimte te decoreren met mijn gevilten sjaals, kledingstukken, etc. Dit omdat ik iemand een foto ervan moest toesturen. De redactie van het blad zou dan beslissen of ik bij het thema Mode pas. Vingers gekruist!!!! Het enige probleem is dat mijn man altijd last heeft van trillende handen, zucht… hoe krijg ik nu een foto van mijzelf tussen alle spulen zonder goede fotograaf??? Ik heb uiteindelijk de camera op zelf ontspanner gezet, snel terug gelopen even wachten. Klik. Wat denk je? Goed of niet????
