The craft/art of Soft Sculpted Cloth Figures has such magnificent scope for creativity, involving fashion/costume design; portraiture; caricature; characterisation; fabric manipulation; quilting/needle sculpture; beading; embroidery; painting; dyeing and printing; knitting; crochet and all sorts of other textile embellishment.
I've been designing and making textile figures for many years. I have also recently taken up knitting and crochet again after a lengthy break
and I'm LOVING IT! Textile Creations UK (http://textilecreationsuk.blogspot.com ) is my new website/ Blog, which includes all my knitted, crocheted, sewn, woven textile creations.
Hi all, I decided to try my hand at a felted pom pom bunny. I'd seen the tutorial on YouTube athttps://blog.pommaker.com/how-to-make-a-bunny-pom-pom/when browsing. It's a great little tutorial) I knew that getting the face shape right was going to be a challenge. However, I decided to give it a go. I am pleased with my very first attempt. The ears are needle felted. Great fun and so quick to make! Anyone else tried this technique?
Hi all, I've been having problems with Blogger lately. However, since my broken hand is now improved, I am back to my crafts. I am also saving Barbie-style dolls from landfill by giving them makeovers for our local charity shop. Hope you are all well and keeping busy.
Hi all, My hand is healing and I'm getting some movement back, though the finger is slightly wonky and may need pinning, which would set me back to square one, again. I don't believe in new years resolutions as a rule, but since I always manage to start several projects one after another before the others are completed; which then makes me fretful and cluttered, I have decided to make one this year.
You've probably guessed it. I'm going to finish all of my WIP's or UFP's before I start anything else and from now on I shall only work on one or maybe two things (e.g. one crochet and one knitting project) at a time.
