How to Wet Felt Flowers

I teach a variety of fiber art classes at our farm, and recently was asked if I would teach a class on How to Wet Felt Flowers. Although I had never taught this particular kind of felting project before, generally I’m always game for learning and trying something new. Not surprisingly, what I found is … Read more

Wet Felting Purse Tips

I taught two wet felting purse classes recently, and promised I’d share some information, so here it is.  The pictures below are felted purses that I have made.  Almost any size or shape purse can be made this way, love the magic of wet felting!

There are some good tutorials out there, though there are different techniques, and sometimes different tools.

Rosiepink is a wonderful felting site by a mother daughter team, Annie and Lynn, that live on the South Coast of England.  Their instructions on How to Make a Seamless Wet Felted Purse are very good, with pictures too! Urban Stitch Studio also has a Free Felted Purse Tutorial in which they use a baggie to create a resist.

Felted Easter Eggs

The sun is actually shining today – it is so pretty!  I must get out and enjoy it.  The first day of March, we are getting there, and oh how we will appreciate those first signs of Spring! I know our alpacas will too.  They have spent way too much time in the barn, that is where the hay is, the snow has been too deep to venture very far. And it is way too deep for their keepers, us, to venture through it to put hay in the pastures.  They will be very happy to see green grass and run in the pastures!
Thinking Spring, these are some Easter eggs that I have wet felted.
If you’ve been wanting to try wet felting, this is easy, just takes soap and water!  I have put together a kit that is fun, and with some creativity, produces lovely results!
