With the arrival of fall I don’t seem to have much time to felt. Today I have to make some felted Soap for the museum store. I thought I would show you how I do it. I do it little differently then Leonor Calaca showed you in September. felting-soap Please remember there is no one right way so you will probably find other ways to do it on line too. They are all good.
Here everything is ready to start. these are my bins of small amounts.
I wrap wool around the sides and then around the whole thing. The green was a small piece of a batt I had and the red is combed top.
Than I wrap either a thin piece of wool top or a piece of silk hanky
Then into a piece on nylon to hold it all together. I make up a bunch and then take them to the living room so I can watch TV while doing the felting.
Once its felted I put it on a cake drying wrack to dry. I am afraid I only gat as far as the pile above and then my grandchildren showed up for an unexpected visit. So here is a picture of some I did another time, drying.
The other thing I wanted to do was remind everyone , especially the people that missed the last one that Terry Berry is doing another Concertina hat class on November 4. Everyone in the last class had a great time. Here is the link to the class. Felted-concertina-hat-with-teri-berry and her is the link to some of the hats people made in class. felted-concertina-hat-gallery
