I make a lot of beads. And a lot of canes. I teach a lot of clay classes. And I spend nowhere near enough time trying other mediums or playing with other techniques. I dabble with needle felting sometimes though. It’s fun and makes completely different items than what my clay makes.
So far I’ve been making little felted fruit and vegetables as fillers for pottery sold in my brick and mortar shop Field and Fable.
What crafty creative thing do you do when you’re not bead using or claying?
Phew! My summer has been hectic and busier than I meant it to be and the fall season is starting off just the same. September 23 & 24, Etsy Saskatchewan will host it’s 4th annual Made in Canada show at Station 20 West in Saskatoon. We’ll have vendor (or want to be vendor) workshops and mini classes as well as more than 40 different vendors over two days. You can get the details including some of our vendor details here.
I made cute little flag beads a bit ago and figured I would write up the process and point it. I did a much looser version years ago but did a more fleshed out one and loaded it up today. Have fun, let me know what needs fixing if you see anything.
