Wrap Bracelets

I forgot to post the fun wrap bracelets that I've created (similar to the famous ones) at an affordable price.  Fun to mix-in with your bracelet collections.

Change of Pace... Origami Paper Folding

This flower is made of 60 sheets of 3" origami paper in 12 colors.  Lots of folding and attachment of petals created this fun dimensional flower...  Also in progress is an 8.5" square card stock paper flower.  30 sheets are complete - card stock is extremely hard to fold so I may not finish the other half...

From poppy to posie

 I've adminred Gillian Harris' "field of poppies" wall hanging from her "Complete Feltmaking" book for years and decided to try a mini version...  Here are the results 

 Wool fibers laid out ~11 x 26"

initial wetting and rolling done, fibers are nicely felted ready to be worked without the bubble wrap

looking a bit too plain and the poppy petals weren't looking right

 so I needled some extra petals, added some beads in the center and turned the poppy into a posie...

Heart Felt, or felted hearts...

I decided to make a small piece of felt (finished size 7" x 8") using the fibers shown and embed a layer of hearts, with one on the top layer...  Looks like another is trying to escape and join the the fun on top!
