The more I learn about felt, the more excited I get!
There is nothing quite like willfully doing the exact opposite you have ever been taught with wool – use hot water! SCRUB! Steam!
It really calls out to the destructive bit of me that revels in crowbars. But then, with felting, you get thing fabulous, solid, water resistant…thing.
A dear friend of mine mentioned that she was thinking of pulling out her felting gear, so thought I would post this project early…felted ball trivets!
From one of my new favourite blogs Purlbee – a knitting blog with some jaw-droppingly beautiful projects. I wish I could knit more complex things than squares. Hmmph.
See the full tutorial here.
Another dear friend gave me a box of wool roving for xmas, so guess what I am going to be making?
Here is a quick video on how to make felt balls for those interested. Super quick and easy.
If you are feeling like something a little less restrained, what about multicoloured squares?
So much felt…so little time.
