The Gourmet felted, designs by Gerry, is holding a needle felting contest and it looks like it will be a fun idea. The rules: Send your entries. Anything can be entered that is needle felted. You can enter a 3-D sculpture, a wool painting, a felted appliqué, felted beads, whatever you can think of felting. Be sure to get over there and think about what you’re going to felt so you can enter this contest. Gerry is now having: BEGINNERS AND ADVANCED ITEMS WELCOME. BECAUSE OF THE DIFFERENCE IN FELTING EXPERIENCE, I HAVE DECIDED TO HAVE A BEGINNERS DIVISION AND AN ADVANCED DIVISION. THERE WILL BE A “BEST BEGINNER’S ITEM” CHOSEN AND A “BEST ADVANCED ITEM” CHOSEN ALSO. SO DON’T BE DISCOURAGED IF YOU ARE JUST STARTING OUT. YOU CAN STILL WIN!! HAPPY FELTING!!LENTY OF TIME. CONTEST ENDS JANUARY 31. START YOUR FELTED ENTRY NOW PRIZE is FREE WOOL of YOUR CHOICE!
I have some wool listed in my ETSY SHOP, but I can also make you a special custom combination of any wool/fiber that you may need for a project that you’d like to do. I have lots of wool that I don’t have listed for sale. Most are animal colors, but I do have bright colors if you need some of that as shown in the photo.
PRIZE ALSO INCLUDES: a CUSTOM MADE FELTING NEEDLE
This is the cutest needle great for doing fine details and smaller sculptures! The grip is so comfortable and gives your fingers a break with a different grasp than used with a regular needle. You’ll just love it!! Check out the wool in my Etsy shop to pick your favorite and send me your entries. http://www.gfelted.etsy.com While you’re visiting the gourmet felt, be sure to check out all her interesting articles on wool’s and she even hands one on how to create your own felting needles. She does amazing felting and you’ll definitely want to visit her shop at ETSY.
Gerry just informed me that she is in the TEDDY BEAR REVIEW MAGAZINE, February issue. Three of her needle felted dogs are included in an article on Needle Felting. It is very exciting for her!
