UPDATE: Photos from the event!
Yup, more needle felting! This past Tuesday, I taught a three hour needle-felting class at the Brooklyn Brainery. The students came up with these adorable creations.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the needle felting craft bash on March 2nd! Check out some of the amazing little creatures that came into being.
I made this basket a few months ago at an open crafts night at the Kollabora headquarters in Soho, but I just got around to placing it in my apartment. It’s the perfect holder for the roving wool that I’ve been working with lately.
To make: use thick yarn and single crochet a never-ending spiral.
Friendship bracelets are back!
I’ve spent hours of my childhood making friendship bracelets… and now hours of my adult life knotting away. But this time I’ve added a twist– crimped ribbon ends and a toggle clasp connected by a few jump rings. I consider this bracelet to be part of the next generation of friendship bracelets.
