OK it sounds weird, but trust me, a rock covered in seamless felt feels good in the hand and looks pretty sweet.
I have done dry needlefelting for a few years. I never tried wet felting before this project. I collected smooth palm sized rocks from the beach, wrapped the in wool roving, dunked in hot water, drizzled dish soap on, massaged/squeezed /worked them until the wool all shrank into itself, rinsed, let dry.
And here they are!
My favourite is the blues.
I wanted to try a bit of embellishment, so made wide simple stitches in beautiful metallic thread on the white one
and some shorter stitches and then some little beads on the brown one
I was thrilled with the whole experience, going to do more this weekend.
