It's not the best idea to start a blog with a long break right away, is it? The reason for me being so silent was the exam period at the university. I'm over the worst, there are only two exams left. :)
I want to show you a present I've made about a year ago for a friend of mine. It's a felted pen, it's partly made with the traditional felting technique, partly with needlefelting.
For making the tulip, I used the instructions found here. Firstly, I felted a ball with a glass marble inside of it, then cut it on one side in the shape of an "X". I took out the glass marble, and continued felting until the tulip had its final shape.
Then I felted the body of the pen, and used needlefelting for the finishing touches: I put the tulip on its place and added a green leaf as well, to make the pen more colorful and tulip-like. :)
Do you like it? :)
See you soon,
