Gotland Locks Kindle Covers and Screen Printing Samples

I worked all day to finish editing videos and write PDF’s for my upcoming Experimental Screen Printing class. I will be making an announcement over at The Felting and Fiber Studio soon about the dates for the class and all the relevant registration information.

These are a couple of photos of the samples that I made for the class. I really enjoyed making this class as I love the screen printing process. And it makes some really cool looking felt that can then be used for other projects. I made a Christmas present from some of this type of screen printed felt but will have to show it to you after Christmas.

And I sewed up a couple of Kindle covers from the felted Gotland locks that I made a couple of weeks ago. It was pretty tricky sewing them since the felt was so thick and it was difficult to get under the presser foot. I broke one needle but finally made it through. I didn’t have a heavy needle like a jeans needle, that would have worked much better. I’m giving one as a gift and perhaps I will sell the other one. We got more snow here so I’ll be up at the ski hill this weekend taking a few runs. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and a happy holiday season!

Gotland Locks from Sweden

Look what came in the mail yesterday. They left Sweden on October 28th and arrived in Montana on November 2nd. Amazing!

These are gorgeous Gotland Locks from Zara in Sweden. I got a box full of locks which I shared with my friend Paula. Not sure what I am making with these yet but maybe the fourth quarter challenge needs some locks!

If you would like to get some of these lovely locks, check out this post on the forum.
