Nunofelt scarf made from recycled fabrics and yarn

Saturday, March 21, 2015

In this project I tried a corset style fitting to allow for top to be easy to put on. It can then be laced tight for a close fit.

A project from years ago, that I thought was unsuccessful, inspired me to start making these scarves. At the time I was using the dryer to felt and lost control over the shrinking process. I do like how thin the felt is and how it looks. A new online friend inspired me to try the dryer again. I am happy with the results and made 3 of these just today.
This is the old project, the back of a jacket

The scarf was inspired by the jacket detail above

Today I was unpacking  the items returned from the Kent State Fashion Museum exhibit (May 8, 2014- February 15, 2015) . I am honored to have been one of the artists, along with other artists that I personally admire; Elizabeth Anyaa, Marjolaine Arsenault, Kim Hahn and Ann Collier, Horst and Gina Horst, Jean Gauger, Dena Gershon, Leslie Samson, Jessica de Haas, Sharon Kilfoyle, Marilou Moschetti, Barbara Poole and  Sherry Schofield. Below is a picture of  a top I made for the exhibit. I am onto a similar project, this time in color and have been dyeing fabrics all day with colored fingertips to prove it!

I have been told I should make scarves over and over. For some reason I just did not get inspired to make too many. Finally I took a clue from amazing Claudia Burkhart and made a not so long and not so rectangular design. It was fun to make and I think I will try this again.

Nuno felt skirt using recycled fabrics and heirloom lace samples. I wanted this  to have a vintage look and  feel. The inspiration was found in the flowered design fabric you can see in the picture below.

Trying something new to me.  It was such  hard work to finish this piece! The shape was achieved by wool layout and fiber direction. The cut out design was fun..can think of many things to do with this  technique! Now my son is questioning the usability of a felted bowl..

 Finished skirt. I am not satisfied with the shape of it, but I like the fabric blend. Wish I would have saved these lovely materials for something else !

Mixing fabrics from recycled clothing to create a new surface is definitely one of my favorite ways to use  nuno felt techniques

More detailed images from old projects

I was going through pictures today and made a collection of more detailed images. It is impossible for me to get bored with this, the possibilities are amazing. I am still experiencing surprises while trying to gain full control over the process. Over time I have tried many different approaches for layout and felting technique, drawing ideas from different classes and inspirations. It is a process for sure : )
