I keep coming across objects that have been covered in fiber. Felted, crocheted, knitted objects of all sorts like beach pebbles and metal necklace babbles.
The above jewerely is designed by Jensen-Conroy. The design duo debuted their knit covered pieces last year at one store in New York and have recently expanded to a few more spots. For a but more information go here.
I've also stumbled across these ocean pebbles that have been knitted over and then felted. They much such cute little desk top paper weights, or home accessories. The maker of these pebble objects is Bugheart who blogs at Sew Green. Read her full blog post here.
And then of course there is the talented crafter Margaret Oomen. In addition to her amazing aesthetics she has been at the forefront of the crocheted rock trend. I've been admiring her fabric and crochet rocks for some time now. Check out her blog, Resurrection Fern, for more fun things and interesting observations. Plus she has even posted a tutorial on felting rocks here using roving. Right now I am loving her crochet glass pieces.
Making your own felt rocks would be a fun project to do, with the kids or the kid in you, after a day at the beach escaping the summer heat to memorialize the day. We have tons of roving in lots of fun colors or maybe you prefer to keep the colors in natural tones. Either way this sounds like a fun project.
