Gingerbread Man

My friend brought over an old wool coat.
She thought I could could use it for felting.
I saw Gingerbread Men!

I cut the coat apart and machine felted the camel wool.

I cut out 12 gingerbread men,
enough for 6 ornaments.

While the wool was felting I shaped a brim for my lime green angora hat.
I re-felted it and now she is drying on Hannah, the hat form.
I have been reading about how to wire a brim.
I think I will try it next week on this soft brim.
I also want to do some beading on the crown.

My forced bulbs are beginning to show green.

Your Gingerbread men are sweet. How exciting to have a hat project going and then see bulbs beginning to show some life.

Dear Lisa,
The Gingerbread men turned out to be so very fun to do. I think I will make snow men next from white wool! I have my Mother's and my Grandmother's buttons so I have plenty for button eyes.
All the bulbs have sprouted. They are growing rapidly too. I hope to have blooms in a couple of weeks.
I am learning about hats. I would love to have few going at once but I am limited right now on my work area.
Thank you for keeping track of my art projects.
Fiber is great!
