I spent some time at the Creativ Festival (large stitch and crafting type show) a couple of weeks back and was absolutely facinated by a demo from one of the Swarovski Ambassadors, Pat Reisenburger. Pat had some fabulous samples to show, including felted flowers and crystal cabochons that she had felted into pendants and cuff bracelets. Well, I didn't have any crystals, but did have Ice Resin cabs that I had made and forgot to post about. A day or so after the show, I broke out the box of wool rovings and had a go at Pat's techniques. It was a lot of fun and I'm quite happy with the results. If you're interested in learning more, please click on the link above and check out Pat's blog. She has some great video tutorials! My first photo shows three different pieces. The felted flower, felted cabochon and I've thrown in a bead embroidered piece for good measure.
