I made this last year. July time. It was meant to be a bracelet type thing for myself, but it ended up being far too long, so instead it hangs on this shelf.
I made another three, but gave them to members of FranKo. I don't think I took photos of them completed.



Have a photo of my reasonable attempts at needle felting. Using a mould of course. The blue and white was my first attempt, the all cream was the second, and is much better.

Second and third are photos of the presents I made for my parents for Christmas last year.
A glasses case with an owl (It's Owloicous from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) for my mum, and an iPod case for my dad.

MORE!

My first Chameleon. He's bigger than the ones I was selling, and has actually got googley eyes!

Then there's the candle holder I made for Rini for her birthday/Christmas last year, but still haven't given her (oops).

And some Felt fish that are actually filled with toy stuffing and catnip for use as cat toys.

Your felted flowers are fabulous!
Aw, you always make the cutest stuff! I want to make such things too but everyone I know would hate being gifted with them. >.< Why can't I know cool people like you? (Maybe it would help to know some, you know, WOMEN and not just computer geeks and academics. Let's not talk about the face my mum makes when I make something for my grandma instead of buying cheap kitsch.)

Googley eyes are sooo fitting for a chameleon, it looks great! That owl is just adorable, I love it!

Penguin made using this pattern
triciarennea.blogspot.co.uk/2008/12/felt-penguin.html

Also, can't remember if I ever posted these anywhere before.
Custom FranKo converse.
They're not official converse, obviously, because they don't have the Logo on them. =P

And then there's my newest project.
Dave Giles inspired shoes!
So far they've begun their lives as plain white, and become purple!

Mini update on the shoes!
One's almost finished, just needs a few bits tweaking or adding then it's done!

Wow... how do you do that? Fabric paints?

Both shoes look really sweet.

Actually ephie, the shoes started white, then I got them wet, and straight away applied some really watered down 'Liche Purple' Games Workshop acrylic. This 'stained' the shoes instead of 'painting them'. Then I painted white acrylic patches where I'm going to draw pictures. Outlines are a permanent marker, and the colouring's all done with coloured pencils. =D

Bugger. Just remembered something else I was going to get while I was out. New laces for these. Oh well. They'll have to be plain white after all.

The FranKo ones are all just plain drawing pencil, with a bit of white around the edges of the pictures to give them some more definition, and permanent marker on the laces and the writing. =)
