Needle and felted soap tutorial

Here's a video I have put together for anyone who wants to make felted soap. The first video is how to needle felt your design onto the soap and then I show you how to felt the soap in the second video. Felted soaps make great Christmas gifts and you can find some amazing handmade soaps on Artfire that you can use to felt. Check out these shops for some awesome handmade soaps. 
Don't want to make your own felted soap just go to Artfire or Etsy and type in felted soap in the search bar to find some amazing soaps.

To do my tutorial I used a bar of Emu Oil soap but you can use any kind of soap. Check out the shops above for some handmade soaps that smell great. I have personally bought from three of these shops and was super happy with my products!

When you are finished felting your soap place it on a towel to dry before using.

NEW Bird Ornament-Needle felted

I have been trying my hand at some little bird's and they are coming out soooo cute! I made this little guy a couple of days ago and listed him on my Artfire and Etsy sites. I was almost thinking of keeping him because he's just so adorable, but alas I can't keep everything I make right!

Needle felted pumpkin

In honor of learning how to needle felt. I have also made this little pumpkin that is available right now in my shop. He's listed as a pay it forward listing and is only .20 cents to buy plus shipping of course. If you happen to purchase him please pay it forward in some way either by listing something cheap or just helping someone out.

So I have broke down!

What have I broke down for you ask? Well I went out and bought myself a needle for felting. I have some organic merino wool that I bought a while back and haven't done a lot with so I thought to branch out and try my hand at needle felting. Well of course I never really try a small project first I always have to jump right in and try the hardest thing I can think of. Of course I wanted to make my niece something for Christmas so I opted for a cat as my first needle felting project. It was an experience and I have already broken one of my felting needles! oopps! but I think he turned out wonderful.

Anyways on to the finished project. I'm hoping she will love it. So what do you think?

Pretty Christmas dishcloths

New to my shop is some crochet Christmas dishcloths. They are a mix of green, red and white, more colors coming soon. I use these dishcloths myself and love how they are great at scrubbing the dirt off of your dishes. They are made of 100% cotton and can be machine washed and dryed. There may be a bit of shrinkage during the first washing. Here's a picture of the set I posted just recently.

Isn't this little guy adorable? I just added him to my shop yesterday, he was such fun to make! I think he would make a lovely little decoration on someones tree or he could just be a little pal to carry around.

I have also added some Christmas baby snap clip hair barrettes to my shop selling at $2.50 a pair. It's a great deal and I'm only charging $1-$2 for shipping on these barrettes. Grab them while you can!

Wow it's been a long time!

Well it's been about 6 months since I have written on my blog! Bad me! My little toddler keeps me running around so I just don't seem to have the time to sit and write! Although it could be I just don't manage my time good enough :)

As promised here are some pics of the wedding jewellery I completed for a bride back in August. The wedding was white, black and red. I did the jewellery for the bride, maid of honor and bridesmaid. The pieces were all different.

The first pic is of the brides two strand Swarovski pearl and Swarovski crystal necklace. The next pictures is the four strand bracelet that turned out beautifully. In the third pic you will see the classy clasp that I added.

The maid of honor had a drop necklace in black pearls and red crystals and a double strand memory wire bracelet.

The bridesmaid had a single pearl and crystal necklace with a single strand Swarovski pearl bracelet.

The earrings were all a simple drop style and I also did some small cultured freshwater pearl and Swarovski crystal pins for the brides hair. The jewellery came out wonderfully and the bride was pleased. I received some pictures from the wedding and the bride looked lovely in the jewellery.

Thanks for looking and if your in need of some jewellery please take a look at my site at http://www.crater.com
