Over the weekend I did a Google search on wet felting, just to see what information was out there on the Web and discovered Rosina's helpful post. I felt energized after reading that, so I pulled out an old cookie sheet, found some bubble wrap and then went to my fiber closet to retrieve some of the dyed wool that I have in abundance. Note to self, next time wear gloves to avoid purple hands.
It was fun to see and feel the wool felting. I wanted my first effort to be have free form edges so I left it like this:
For my next try, I wet felted some wool that had been gradation dyed turquoise:
I decided to mount the yellow flower design on a piece of Pellon Peltex 70 ultra firm stabilizer that I covered with hand dyed violet cotton fabric. I sewed a strip of velcro to the top of the backing piece so that I could display it on my front door, then I embellished the wool using Sulky Rayon thread and a big quilting foot on my sewing machine.
Yesterday afternoon it was sunny on the mountain, so I loaded my gear in my Pathfinder, packed the dogs' coats along with a granola bar, and headed out the door with my two canine buddies. It was an awesome day to ski, with hardly anyone on the runs, so I went up and down my favorite runs until my legs were telling me they were done :-) After that I threw the ball for Max and Sam until they were both tired and happy, and we headed down the mountain back home.
Here's hoping that you have time to do something fiber today.
