Brilliant Wool Storage Organization Idea

Wool Storage Idea by Judy Stodola featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

The Awesome Wool Organization that FIRED UP our fb group. Some people are already setting up their own version of this innovative storage system! We love it!

“It was time to organize my small work area! I didn’t have room for plastic storage containers so this is what I came up with! I can see all my wool basically at once.

When I run out of a color, I hang the plastic bag at the end and then I know what to order. All bags are labeled with a sample of wool and color name! The gray bags hanging on the left side hold my wet felting supplies!”

Hot Tip: How to Organize and Catalogue Your Wool and Fiber Stash

Fiber Binder to Organize Wool and Fiber by Cherie Davidson featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

WOW FACTOR!!

Cherie Davidson of Darlin’ Girl Creations really made our day with the little video she posted of her Swatch Binder! We are always telling people to save back little samples with their label… and look what she did!

“I’ve finally started my fiber samples catalog/inventory binder! I’m excited to be able to flip through this and know what colors I need to re-order. Once I can move into my studio space, I’ll coordinate these with my wool bins and containers for quick inventory checks.

Oh, the wonderful bliss that comes from organization…and wool displayed…”

Fun Felted Butterfly Tutorial

Needle Felted Butterfly by Marie Spaulding featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog.

It is so fun to explore what you can make with a bit of MC-1 Batting, Wool Felt and a Transfer Pen!

After transferring the wing pattern from printer paper to the felt with the Transfer Pen, the wings were needle felted onto the Wool Felt and then cut out.

The body was needle felted and slits cut into the sides. I used pins to plan the wing placement and overlap, then wings inserted into the slits. Hide the insertion points and join to the body more securely by needle felting wool between the wings and the body.

For this Elephant Hawk Moth, I first wet felted Fuchsia Merino Top and cut out the wing shape. then the accent colors were needle felted on top.
