Felted Vest Workshop

Last Wednesday I packed up the car with pool noodles, my box of felting stuff ( roving of a miriad colours, fancy yarns, scissors, coloured felt bits, etc) and some old towels and a mop and headed out the  Odessa Fairgrounds.....for our Felted Vest Workshop.

The Room
I had dyed four pieces of prefelt different colours, Michele was the only one who
I had Bea, who brought Donna & Kim, and Michele who I already know is an artistic soul.  Here they are at their respective tables getting started.

I had taken my 'stash' and spread an assortment out on the centre table for the participants to pick from.









This is Bea's start, her colour was a reddish.














And Donna got a sort of magenta piece....at least that was what I was going for when I dyed it.















Kim got an interesting aqua which inspired a sort of under sea motif. The balls of wool are to mark where the armholes will be (sorta). I think they look like eyes...or boobs! (except that's the back!)














Then there's Michele's who had asked for grey and dove into pinks and greys to decorate her piece.












Bea just couldn't be stopped!!!! She just kept cutting, placing, playing, piecing, layering, more and more bits.....her European background is coming out.












This is Michele's finished piece...after lots of working, wetting, felting, fulling.....













I'm cutting armholes on Kim's.
Kim, Donna, Michele & Bea.



Michele took hers home and tweaked it with some great beads on her sari silk strands.
