More Cobweb Felt Scarves

I love the sheen the bombyx adds to the matte merino wool on these cobweb felt scarves. Everything is getting polka dots these days. It must be polka dot season.
Normally I only make one of a kind items, but I just had to keep this scarf so I made another one like it to sell at the DHS craft fair in Denton, TX. The wool was dip dyed and ranges from a bright scarlet to a deep burgundy. The polka dots are prefelt laid on top of the red roving.

Unfelted Pebbled Purse

This is the start of a purse with gray prefelt pebbles. I want it to look like river stones when it is finished. It has a two resists, so it will have an interior pocket when it is felted.

Peter Pan Slippers

These merino slippers are not as shiny as the flash makes them look. The diamond sewn on the front accents the blue silk fibers felted into the wool.

Night Sky Cobweb Felt

Mmmmm, I love these colors. All the thunderstorm-at-night colors felted together with shiny bombyx silk like bolts of lightning.
