I really like UNIFORM Studio Blog because she talks a lot about the inspiration for the pieces she makes and the process she goes through in creating her clothes. I think it would be fun to keep a log of what is inspiring or interesting to me (I realize this may not be at all interesting to you--sorry!). Also, I think it will be fun if I do make something to have a link to the source of inspiration.
Over the holidays I got into wet felting roving into balls. It started with a purchase from Wool Handcrafts. Then I went to the local yarn/wool store and ended up with $15 worth of roving (credit card minimum charge--$15 will buy a lot of roving). After making all the Christmas ornaments and balls and felting kits I still had boatloads of wool.
When I saw this photo (via Design Sponge) (please follow that photo link, it's not even that exciting but took me a seriously long time to find again) I realized I wanted to make a bowl full of brightly colored wool "stones."
Tonight I finally got around to it:
I think they'll be a fun, toddler-friendly table decoration in a wood bowl (or maybe a felt bowl if I really get my act together). They're all slightly different roundish shapes from about the size of a tiny tangerine to the size of a potato from the cheap 5# bag of potatoes (a smallish potato).
This was a fun evening project--I recommend it.
