Some great tutorials from ‘very purple person’!

I love some of the great tutorials ‘very purple person’ has posted on the internet especially the ultra simple cowl and hand warmers created from an upcycled scarf!  When I am drooling and admiring other crafters and artists work I always have my brain in gear thinking of ways to adapt the various shapes into my feltmaking and since I am SO TOTALLY out of time for the rest of this week drooling is about all I can do at the moment!!!

Fun and simple tutorials from two of the blogs that I follow!

Currently the number of blogs that I regularly follow is 178 and rising.  While the majority are felting orientated I also have some fibre, art, craft, food and garden related blogs that I like to keep an eye on weekly, daily would be fantastic if I could ever get the time!  Here are links to a couple of my favourite online tutorials, check out the other posts by Tiffany and Gail, both blogs are fabulous.

Bottle Cap Magnets

Yesterday Tiffany Teske had a gorgeous simple project on her ‘Art, Food and Motherhood’ blog to celebrate Earth Day.  If like me you have a pile of bottle caps and magnets just crying out to be used, check out these funky magnets and head on over to follow her step by step instructions.

Woven Tree

The second project that I really love is a little weaving project which uses wool roving, this time from Gail, writer of ‘That Artist Woman’ blog.

To see what I usually do with my roving or wool batts head on over to Clasheen anwhere I am just about to post about my latest felt hat in progress!
