I am having so much fun dyeing scarfs. I feel excited everytime i can finally open the scarfs. Wonder about how the result wil be and the colors. It keeps me surprising everytime.

back side

As you can see on yesterday’s post the lace was first mint green something, but it also absorbed the purple dye, except for the bottom laces. But I think it matches the white where the wrapping was… 

I still had one other scarf, which needed to be dyed too  I wanted to show here too, but I somehow deleted all my pictures of last years….  Help!!  I just hope I can find them back … and show you my other new felts tomorrow

Enjoy this day!

A new year

After celebrating the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012 I am ready to make some new felts again……  I didn’t want to make something I already once made, but wanted to experiment a little.  But first as everyone does: best wishes for you my dear blog readers.  May2012 be a Happy, healthy and a year filled with new  (good) experiences and lots of creativity !!

For inspiration I just had a good look at my supplies and decided to use the things I haven´t used for a long time.. Started with lace, wool and even dye ……

Will  let the pictures do the talking….

Last week it was finally sunny!!!  I was able to take some new pictures of my nunofelted scarfs. Making pictures isn´t easy but I think I managed to get some nice shots now …  I know they can always be better I am not a professional photographer.

Nuno felt is when you use silk fabric in combination with wool. I made a tutorial about how to make a nunofelted scarf enjoy your weekend!!

viltalakim, vilt, sjaal

In de  afgelopen week heb ik eindelijk tijd gehad om weer eens nieuwe foto´s te maken van mijn nunovilten sjaals… de zon scheen en er was eindelijk genoeg licht.  Mooie foto´s maken is niet gemakkelijk maar van de 10 zijn er meestal  2 wel bruikbaar…  Ze kunnen nog altijd veel beter, maar ik ben helaas geen professionele fotografe.

Nuno vilt is een vilt techniek waarbij je zijde stof combineert met wol en zo een heerlijke soepele doek ontstaat die ook nog aangenaam warm is. Ik heb er ooit een foto les van gemaakt.  die kun je hier zien: how to make a nunofelted scarf  Veel plezier dit weekend!!
