functional felt swap : 1 week to go!

felted soap
only 1 week left! it’s so fun to check the flickr group daily and see new projects popping in. the work is just amazing, and i hope that everyone is still having fun!

a little giveaway for swappers that meet the may 28 deadline: if you finish your swap item and send it out by next wednesday may 28, you are eligible to receive one of the three felted soaps pictured above. i made the soaps with an olive oil glycerin base and lavender essential oils, and felted them with roving from birdie. (i used the how to felt over a bar of soap tutorial from mielke’s fiber arts.) to enter: leave a comment here stating you’re done, leave a comment with anna’s latest update post, or send an email to functionalfeltswap {at} gmail {dot} com stating you’re done! you have until may 28!

congratulations to debbie, who will be receiving anna’s lovely felted bracelet from last week’s giveaway!

    My swap item is on its way to its new owner. Would love to win one of these beauties! You guys are the best swap organizers.

    Mine is in the mail today! I had a lot of fun with this swap, thanks for putting it together.

  3. Anna says:

    The soaps turned out great! Nice color combinations.

    As I mentioned in my last post, I’m not done knitting my swap item. My hopes are to finish by Sunday so I have time to felt it in the washer and let it dry. A warm sunny day would certainly help the drying process. Here’s to hoping I just have to do one run through the washer!

    Oh, poo. Should have learned how to felt. And then should have entered the swap. Those soaps are great.

    mine went out in the mail last week. thanks for having this swap. i had lots of fun making my bowl for my swap partner and it inspired me to do some more felting (well,knitting and felting). love the colors you used to felt your soaps.

    i love making felted soaps.

    my package went out today…so it’s off to it’s new home. i loved this swap – it was hard to choose what to make because there were so many fun and beautiful options.

    My swap is off the the Post Office today so it can wing its way from rainy windy England to the U S of A – where I hope the weather is brighter.

    I’ve uploaded a sneeky peak of mine to the Flickr group – and will reveal all of it once its reached its new owner.

    Although teis swap was a challenge for me – it was great to participate

    thanks again for organising, and keeping us all on the straight and narrow timewise – your little incentives along the way are a great idea!
