Tuesday





Lately I have been experimenting making felted rope Shimenawas and the samples have slowly turned into necklaces!
There are three different necklaces and one small Shimenawa that can be pinned in your hair or hung over a doorway.

awesome ashley -- but your link to where you are selling them doesn't work!

it's funny -- you are on my wavelength: all i have been wanting to do lately is sit on my kitchen floor + endlessly roll these long pointy felt things (look like your necklaces but not soooo beautifully thick!), they are all over the house! it's so therapeutic to make them...

I love the shape of these. I can imagine making many thin strands and twisting them together into some sort of braid.
