Moustache Ball Phone Dust Plug

My first attempt at needle-felting. I thought I’ll try out needle-felting since I took up hand-spinning and have all this wool/fiber around.

I dunno why disembodied moustaches are considered cute. Anyway, this is a sparkly felted rhinestone mobile phone dust plug with a tiny gold acorn.

I try to buy something durable with my Chinese New Year money every year and this year it’s my first spindle. Her name is Grape Soda and she’s a beautiful Greensleeves Katherine’s Cup from Greensleeves Spindles. She has a 2.5 inch Purpleheart whorl with a Macassar Ebony Shaft. The last photo is my first hand-painted braid, Falkland wool top in the “Autumn” colorway from Spunky Eclectic which I am currently spinning.

Hand-sewn Chinese Silk Purse Hand-Embroidered with Plum Flowers and Butterfly

100% Silk on Silk.

My own attempt at a hanfu hebao. I meant to make it out of blue satin but I couldn’t find it in the right color so I had to use blue silk instead which is more expensive *groan* The plum blossoms design is from a template but the thing was printed in such a blurry fashion by inkjet on paper that in the end I had to use my own imagination to fill in the blanks.

I made this for a friend and gave it away just before Chinese New Year but my computer troubles plus New Year obligations meant that I only got around to uploading this now.

I promised someone that I would make a bigger bag but I don’t know when that will be finished…I have yet to choose/buy the fabric…
