PATTERN DETAILS

This PDF features 3 of my popular tutorials: How to Photograph Felt and Fibres; Batch Editing in Photoshop and Making a Banner. Anyone who has ever tried to photograph felt or fibres such as yarn or wool tops knows how hard it is, the camera doesn't know where to focus...they're solid, but not quite :) There are some tips on how to get accurate colour representation and lighting, and also how to digitally lighten an image without making it too harsh. The Batch Editing tutorials shows how you can open multiple photos or pictures and edit them all exactly the same, for example, shrink them all to 50% of their original size. You can also use the same feature to add signatures or colour changes. Making a banner shows how to design your own banner for using on your website, blog or etsy store. With the 3 tutorials together you should be able to take some great fibre photos, edit them and use them to make a unique banner. *** This tutorial is exactly the same as my other one of the same name. They used to be in different sections, but since the Felting category has gone, my projects are all lumped in together in the 'Other' category. Sorry for any confusion.

I've been felting for quite a few years, and never get tired of trying out different wool breeds, fabrics, fibres and techniques to make felt even more interesting. I enjoy the process of felting as much as the outcome and love to learn why and how different effects are achieved.
