The moving felt rug


If felt grows directly on your body weather seems not to be a reason for complaining :-D
That animal is a puli .

Angel Felt Box for Christmas





Ever felt an angel's breath in the gentle breeze? A teardrop in the falling rain? Hear a whisper amongst the rustle of leaves? Or been kissed by a lone snowflake? Nature is an angel's favorite hiding place. ~Carrie Latet

I wish you a merry Christmas!

Flattering Felt Box

A hanging felt box again. Some say it looks like an angel. Other say it's an owl. What do you think?

Sometimes I don't fancy working with bright colors. That's a piece for giving my eyes a rest. Only natural, curly wool with some effect yarn which you don't see on the photo but in the sunshine it glitters in the felt.

Felt tutorials

I wanted to make my first online felt course in English in November. As you may have noticed nothing happened. Because I got an invitation for a Christmas market in Germany and I decided to take the chance so I felted like crazy this time and soon I'll travel.

But you can get the 4 tutorials I prepared for this felt course:

1. How to felt pine trees with different designs. Standing and hanging version.

2. How to make crazy patch felt which can be used for brooches, bags and 1000 other things.

3. How to felt wrist warmers with felted gingerbread. An eye-candy for the cold season.

4. The making of a very special angel box. You'll use spiritual energies while making it. I guarantee there won't be two equals.

(I show the felting process with step-by-step photos, very detailed, anyway I advice to buy them if you have already been felting a hollow form.)

You can get them only bundled for 30 USD. To buy them send this amount to the PayPal account corika@yahoo.com and I send you the .pdf files within 24 hours after the money was debited. Please leave also your billing address as a message which I can give to my bookkeeper. (From 1st Dec. to 8th Dec. I'm not at home and I still don't know if I'll have internet access. So you might wait getting them till I'm back if you buy that week.)

If you think the tutorials weren't worth buying them, let me know within 24 hours after getting them and I'll send your money back.

Whish you a happy week

Hanging felt vessel


I loved felting this bird nest.




But mostly I like making felt boxes, vessels, cases etc. where man can hide lovely treasures, hold necessary things or leave messages for someone.
So this nest is to work as such a helper in the abode.

It's quite big...



The beads are from a necklace of the 60-70s. Someone gave them to me, maybe I could use them instead of throwing away. Now I found a good place for them. That's also some kind of recycling...

It looks beautiful when the light shines through them.

I felted in silk fibres and pieces of a gift-ribbon.


My favorite color has been blue since I was a child. Different shades. In the last time I like to combine it with more green and warm yellow.

I will take it with me to a Christmas market in Germany and I hope it will find a new home.


Have a sunny day!

Felted snow







The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found? ~J.B. Priestley

Otherwise: Snowflakes are kisses from heaven.

Felt bag called "Gipsy Love"

Metamorphosis.

From ink to fibres.


From idea to realization.

Felt bird nest


This felted nest hangs on that felt cord with the embroidered felt leaf on the end.


Or is it sitting on the branch?


My aunt lives at door nr.18.



Felted in gauze, alt lace and a leaf skeleton.

The embroidered nuno felt birdy is dangling inside...


Have a nice day!

Felting in paper...

...is an interesting experiment.

Because there is thin paper, thick paper, colourful paper, colourless paper, rough paper, fine paper, glossy paper and matt ones...

And the felting process can go by rolling, rubbing, throughing, forceful or gently...
























This "paper wing" is a part of a felt object I made for my aunt's birthday. It's title is "Vogelnest". That means bird nest.

More photos about this felt next week.

I wish you a sunny autumn weekend!

PS.: Be a follower of my facebook site CorNit-Felt Art ! I will post there more things and more often than here and I'm planning special offers for my facebook followers.

Gipsy felt


That's me
on these misty photos on the left in the Museum of Arts and Craft in Budapest.
After I got the 2. prize at the Romani Design competition.


Romani Design is a young team of gipsy designers who make modern and trendy clothes and jewelry for gipsies and want to reduce the intolerance between gipsies and "white people"
I show you some photos of the 2nd gipsy fashion show, where also the exhibition and award ceremony took place
These are only Romani Design clothes, I'll show you the work of the other competitors and mine later.























A real horse shoe as necklace pendant! Because it's always good to have luck on your side.

Like a gipsy princess: Helena Varga, goldsmith. She makes jewelry for Romani Design and is one of the founders.








At the right: Erika Varga in an interview with my felts in the background. She is fashion designer and founder of Romani Design. She always wears black. But with some gipsy cloth details of course. Look at her HAIR!!!






Woman wearing a Romani blouse.




The girls were singing wonderful!




Visitors wearing Romani Design.

















At the exhibition there were shown old photos. These were my favorites:
I didn't have time to take photos of my gipsy felts: 3 felt bags and 3 pairs of spats. They will be also exhibited in the House of Terror in Budapest.
Watch the video of the 1st Romani fashion show ! (They only speek a short time hungarian and the clothes are so cool!)
Romani Design in the www: http://www.romani.hu/ (For the photo gallery scroll down and look at FOTOGALÉRIA on the right.) If you're in Budapest don't miss their shop!

Felted wall case with snails

This wall case was ordered for a silver wedding. I used white wool and felted in silk fibres, lace, pongee silk and gauze.


It should be used to leave lovely surprises for each other and also "hints", critics, praises for further developement of the relationhsip. Sometimes it is difficult to say something and it's easier to write a letter. If you write on a slip of paper "I HATE YOU!" and put this paper somewhere you also put down a big part of your hate. And afterwards when the other one finds it, you can already laugh about it together. Or talk about it calmly. Energies doesn't go lost they convert. And felt has magical forces as we know!


The spiral is an ancient symbol we can meet in every culture and everywhere in nature. Endless dynamics and vitality, everlasting change and searching for the inner centre...relationship of two...there are also big energies. Sometimes positives, sometimes negatives.



I embroidered the snails glossy slime traces. Somewhere they cross each other then they depart, afterwards they go parallel to each other. Like our ways in life. To exist under one umbrella seems to be a clear situation. But our inner ways are much more windig. In the ideal case they run in the same direction.
