For Midwest Felting Symposium Ottoman


Here is the ottoman for the Midwest Felting Symposium in it's early stages. The fibers have all been hand dyed and in the case of the yarn, hand spun. I've made several of these, but this is the one I am currently working on. It requires the wet felting process yet, which will be done this weekend. Come Monday, I should have the end results to share with you.
If you are thinking of taking the class with me at Symposium, it's not too early to start planning your designs, and colorways. I'll try to have as many templates as I can possibly get done. If you have ideas, please feel free to share them.
For more details on Midwest Felting Symposium, see previous posts or just type it in your browser. So many wonderful teachers there, great amount of talent!

Shalom

I like these objects and you can use them also! Today I saw some more in the new Felt Matters iss.91- maybe I'll try to make one at home. I'm from Holland, so my blogs are in Dutch (www.dovadi.web-log.nl/fiberfusing) - but hopefully you can 'read' the pictures.... best regards, Dorie van Dijk

Thanks! I had so much fun making this. It's all hand-dyed fiber. Really was a labor of love.
