Meet Alfred

This is Alfred. He is my latest needle felt project. I took Kay Petal's online course from http://www.feltalive.com/ and he is the result. It took a while to do his Hawaiian shirt and I was beginning to wish I had never started it, but I am pleased with the results. I did not have any particular person in mind when I started him. He created his self as I went along. I really enjoyed doing this and hope to do a new doll soon.
Right now I am working on a beading project for Beading For A Cure. You purchase a kit of beads, and you do not know what they are until you get them. Then you make a project from them. You have to use at least one of each bead, and you are allowed to add one bead of your own, as many as you want , but only the one kind and color. You can add all the metal spacers and findings you want, and cabochons and pendants. I will post here when it is finished.
Hope you enjoyed your visit with Alfred.

  1. WOW! Alfred is wonderful. Isn't Kay a GR8 teacher? Is this your first attempt at making a needle felted person? I love his retired/relaxed persona and the Hawaiian shirt is fantastic! Love those sandals too.
