Following on from my last post I thought I would share my experience of making felt for the first time.
Just so you know the lesson I learnt was that I should follow instructions rather than just plowing straight into something.
So I started off with my wool
I purchased this from Forest Fibres and was a fantastic bargain.
The next stage is to then layer the wool in different directions, this I did then covered with soapy water and rubbed.
It all blended together though there where a few small holes but that can be ignored.
I ended up with this
Looks gorgeous doesn't it :0)
I did miss a few of the steps out, like making sure it was really soapy then rolling it, fulling it, and then shrinking it.
Oh well as my first go I am pretty impressed maybe next time I will do it properly.
