You probably know that I've made a resolution this year to get my crafty arse into gear and make time each week do a little bit of making. I've also decided to up my game and actually learn some new skills.
So last Saturday I signed myself up to do a morning workshop in felt making!
We were given free reign of the Merino wool basket, choosing which colours we wanted to use. I of course went for the 'Scarlett' red, hot pink and a bit of white:
We laid all our wool out on a bamboo mat and using the 'Wet Felting' technique added water and soap and rolled the whole thing up....
....much rolling later and very sore arm muscles I had made a piece of felt:
So what to make with my piece of handmade felt?...
Voilà! A handmade felt rose brooch!
I'm quite pleased with the results of my first attempt at the craft, I'm also now totally hooked and am waiting a delivery of some merino wool so I can get making some more! Move over Kirstie Allsopp ;o)
Have you tried felt making?
