A New Bunch of "Pretties"

So I tried my hand at felting!! They turned out nice, I just need to experiment a little more with size and shape. These will be going into my Etsy shop tonight.
 These are the two blue ones I tried out, they are different sizes but a nice round shape.
 I also tried some mixed greens with hints of red and yellow. I like how some of them turned out oval, It just happened naturally. The colours are a nice mix for your autumn designs, which for magazine submissions are pretty much happening right now!
 I also made a whole bunch of new pendants that are sure to catch your eye! Althought the dragonflies are for a special order the butterflies are going into my Etsy shop and so are the birds.
I am leaving the un-drilled and you can let me know how you want them drilled. That way you get it exactly the way you want it!

Busy night tonight, so I will be posting periodically :)

Beautiful work, Marie! I'm afraid to try my hand at felting, even though I started my creative life with textiles. I'm afraid I would like it too much.

I have been working with pre-made felt beads for a while and have started making my own as well. It can be a bit tricky to start to get the bead to felt evenly but once you figure out what works for you, it is easy and fun. I use ``green`` dish soap with no additives or anti-bacterial properties. I don`t know if it makes a difference but the soap washes out quickly.

I love your pendants. I want to start to make something like the ones you make. Can you share your skills with me?
