Isn’t he handsome? He has a very sweet personality, great horns, good color percentage and the best part – no destructive behavior 😉 I had so much fun making him!
I was inspired by a couple felting sites – www.woolpets.com and www.feltpets.com – I have been browsing the internet for felting ideas because my goal for 2009 is to open a little fiber shop on our farm!
We have the perfect little building for it. It has one main room with a little kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. I have been using it for fiber storage and had plans for opening a fiber shop, but was overwhelmed with how to go forward. Over the weekend the idea came to me to teach felting classes! My concern with opening a fiber shop was how was I going to get customers? I am going to start small, but I have big plans and have found a couple lines of products that I would like to sell. My brother came over on Saturday and helped me brainstorm and layout areas for shelves and a big work table. The table is going to be reversible for wet felting on one side and dry felting on the other. A couple ideas for classes are – 3D felting (like Ramsey), flat needle felting (like my wall hangings), and wet felting (like my scarves). I am really excited now that I have a plan and am moving forward 🙂 I’ll keep you updated on how the little house is transforming and when you can sign up for classes!
