felt is king!

I love this!  The Lion Head by Keily Stewart is now ensconced in our window and let me tell you- folks are smiling as they walk by and catch his eye.  Who can blame them.  This guy has got charm oozing from his well hidden ears (he has a lot of mane).  You can see more pictures of the Lion in action on Keily’s website.  I particularly like this one where he relaxes at the park.
The lion head is made using several types of felting techniques and if you are at all curious about how someone goes about making such a thing then you are in luck!  The Knit Cafe is running 2 felt-making workshops in the month of August. No you won’t be making a giant lion head, but you could make yourself a miniature version in Edie Kim’s upcoming Needle Felting Workshop.

This box of fun contains Edie Kim’s creative genius.  She will be dishing out knowledge and demonstrating skills in her upcoming needle felting class.

Keily Stewart (the creator of ye olde lion head)  has also agreed to disperse her pearls of wisdom on the subject of Wet Felting. Lion Heads will not be part of the curriculum. Instead look forward to making a pair of felted slippers.

Craftily yours
