Success with "wet felting" at last!!




I was in the Borders bookshop the other day and managed to get a great book called Creative felting for £2.99 (I have also seen it in The Works for those who live in the UK). I followed the instructions and managed to make this beaded glasses case which I am very pleased with. Yesterday I went to a textile/felting group that I belong to and made a start on a felted bag. I worked on it last night and managed to finish it today. I think it will look really cool with my denim jacket in the summer. I am glad I stuck with wet felting as at first I was finding it very difficult but am so pleased with the results. I think its addictive...
