Alas, my friend, I tell you, my life consists of dreaming of crafting, crafting and punctuated by the feeding and caring of a pile of children (3). Thus this page is in an unkempt, unfinished state. You can still browse through it, time will tell when I will tidy this page up. Cheers! – Jzin
My Unbridled Love of Felting
There. I love something more than chocolates. Now you know you can buy me wool, silk and other fibers for my birthday instead of European chocolates. Jzin. October, 2013.
Jzin’s Felt Tutorials
Jzin’s Experimentations and Learning
Las mujeres otomies del Valle del Mezquital, en Hidalgo – México, elaboran estropajos y bolsas con las fibras de un maguey. Primero recolectan las pencas, las queman y golpean para separar las fibras de ixtle de los duros tejidos de la epidermis vegetal. El ixtle se lava, se tiñe, se seca y se “peina” en las espinas de las biznagas.
