How Peace Felt works?

 "Sending out works of PEACE FELT during September will result in these handcrafted works of art creating an energetic circle of peace and loving kindness around the planet as they travel from one heart to the next."


This is my contribution for this Peace Felt exchange.

It will be sent to Michigan, US
to a lovely lady who is very active into Peace Group.

When I first work on the design,
I want to make a fashion statement piece because my FELTasticFashion background & I was thinking about the Olympic Ring colors.
"...the six colours [including the flag’s white background] thus combined reproduce the colours of all the nations, with no exception. The blue and yellow of Sweden, the blue and white of Greece, the tri- colours of France, England and America, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Hungary, the yellow and red of Spain next to the novelties of Brazil or Australia, with old Japan and new China. Here is truly an international symbol." -  August, 1912 edition of Olympique by   Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic Games. 


I hope my receiving partner will Love It. & Treasure It.

HAPPY BIRD


When my 3YR daughter saw her brother making his own angry bird,

she also asked for one too!

However, I told her why don't we make a happy bird instead?!

Here we go...

a special happy bird for my daughter.

PARENTAL INFLUENCE?!

My son has been bagging me to teach him needle felting for months.

I was a little bit nervous as it's his first time to handle the sharp needle.

I told him to wait until he's at least 7 years old.

***

So, the past Labour Day long weekend, as promised,

we were felting together for the very first time.


It did't take very long & he picked up felting very quick.

He was so proud with his first felted creation! 

He's already looking forward to work on a second one!

***

I can't believe & actually this is a great example of "Parental Influence"

My 3YR daughter was so cute & she knew that she cannot needle felt.

What she did? 

She used her color marker & pretend felting like we did!

She called it {pen} felting!
