Happy Wednesday everyone!!
What a wonderful weekend of jubilee celebrations it has been - I hope you have all enjoyed it.
AND - what fun WOYWW was last week.
Thanks to all who visited my blog and especially a big thank you to those who joined in the ATC swapping fun!
Due to popular demand I spent a day making a few more.......
Some of my ATC dumflings, that I posted on Thursday, have already reached USA, Canada AND Australia!! So dumfing has officially gone global!!!
However - lots of you wanted to know what it is and how I did it.
So I took a few snaps as I went along this week.
Here is my piece of green pre-felt from Sara of www.SarasTextureCrafts.com
I have used my needle felting machine to attach yarns and wool rovings for the foliage.
Now I have added some bright petal coloured wool roving for the flowers.
Then I use dark thread to free machine the detail into the flower shapes and foliage.
I put some firm vilene on the back and zig-zagged round each one to make them ATC size.
Here are a few fuschia ones....
She thinks if I make thousands of little dumflings and sell them at £1 each then she will be debt free in no time!! Something didn't quite add up to me ...
I make - she sells - her mortgage is cleared mmm!
I wonder what Alan Sugar would make of that as a business proposition!!
Hope you have enjoyed my little dumfing class - do email if you want to know more.
Now let's pop over and see if Julia our WOYWW queen enjoyed her anniversary celebrations too.
Have a great week .
