I have not been doing much since the Christmas rush so I thought I would make something I could work on while watching the Olympics. A bubble necklace seemed to fit the bill.
I started with some off cut peices of prefelt that I had. The red will end up as the underside. It will show in the holes.
I added some green silk hankies to the black side.
I rubbed it a little and then into the dryer
I changed to plastic instead of the shear for the next round in the dryer .
This is after finishing the hand fulling. You can see the silk has melted into the wool.
I made some felt balls to use to make the bubbles.
I put these through the washer and dryer to make the balls. I am using felt ball instead of marbles because I don’t know how many of the bobbles I will cut open. I use horse tail and mane braiding elastics to make the bobbles.
Up until now I have been calling this a necklace. However I do not know what to attach to it to make it into a necklace. It is quite big so needs something fairly heavy or heavy looking even though the necklace isn’t heavy. I don’t think I want to use felt rope. Anyway it is long enough to use as a bracelet so it may become that after it is cut.
