wow. i cannot say how happy and excited i am with how the functional felt swap well, functioned! the participants are an amazing bunch of creatives, and everything that was made is functional. pieces were knitted then felted. traditional felt was sewn and woven. sweaters were up-cycled into new creations. roving was transformed into shapes and sheets. i’ve put together a little mosaic of some of the work. i’ll post another one tomorrow. you can also check out the functional felt swap flickr pool to see more great work.
anna and i couldn’t be more ecstatic! it’s the first swap we’ve organized (and the 2nd one i’ve participated in), and all of you that joined us really made it rock. we hope it’s been a fun experience for you, and we’ve made new friends that we hope to keep in touch with!
ooops, i almost forgot! i put the names of those that have confirmed they have finished and posted their item into a bowl, and drew 3 last night. the lucky winners of the soaps are:
- jackie c in california
- sarah c in alabama
- abby b in minnesota
congratulations, the soaps are going out in the mail today!
