I am thrilled that Annie and Lyn of “Rosie Pink” are allowing me the privilege of hosting another giveaway for their new eBook “How to Make 3D Felt Vessels Using Flat Resists eBook (PDF format)” I am sure many of you remember the giveaway for their “CREATING FELT ARTWORK” eBook . The giveaway was so popular that 93 of you entered. Now Annie and Lyn wrote and illustrated their new book titled “Wet Felting: How to Make 3D Felt Vessels Using Flat Resists eBook (PDF format)” and they are offering 3 of you a chance to win their stunning book and you too can learn to make your own 3D vessels. The ladies do an awesome job creating their eBook. The pictures are stunning and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. Some of our best felters live in the UK and these lovely ladies are no exception. The ladies take us on a journey of creating felt artwork using the techniques they prefer, but they assure us that you will develop your own way of doing things once you get going. They choose not to include the history of felting (due to the fact that so many before them have explained the details in their books) so they just get straight down to the fun stuff and simply show their creative process, the materials they use, and lots of ideas to inspire you. You will find so much inspiration in this book and in no time you will have your own special stunning vessels. This book is for beginners as well as seasoned felters looking for new techniques. Annie, and her mum, Lyn of ‘Rosie Pink’ both live on the South Coast of England. They love textiles and fibers and have a passion for felt artwork. ‘Wet Felting: How to Make 3D Felt Vessels Using Flat Resists’ is a 120 page eBook (PDF format) written by Annie & Lyn, and it’s packed with clear explanations and over 200 color photos. It’s suitable for beginners and experienced felt makers alike who want to learn about felting with resists. They hope you will find it an interesting and useful guide on your own felt vessel making journey. What is a resist? A resist is usually cut from a piece of pliable plastic and is placed between layers of wool to prevent the layers from felting together – to resist felting. Felting with a resist will produce a seamless, hollow shape to make not only vessels such as decorative vases, pots, ornamental pods and bowls, but also items such as cat caves, bird houses, lampshades, bags, purses, mitts, boots, slippers and sleeves for phones, tablets and other devices. They specifically show you how to make vessels but the methods are easily tailored to any number of other projects.
