Here are some pot holders I wetfelted. You either hate them or love them.
I love your eggs those are so cute!  How did you get the yolk so round without bleeding everywhere?

Those are great!

Thanks for the tips!  I'll try some of those :-)

I was wondering if someone had any good methods of fulling felt.  I have been rolling it up in a matchstick blind, over and over.  The problem is that the middle never really seems to get done properly and I don't seem to be strong enough to do a stellar job, plus I'm getting sores on my arms from doing this, does anyone do it a different way that may be more sufficient?

Thanks!

I've been thinking of trying this. What kind of cloth mesh would I need to get?

I went to home depot and bought screen for about $4, it came in a roll, and I was able to cut it into 2 pieces.

Thanks for the compliments!  I appreciate it.

I made one, I had a hard time getting the two colors to stick together where they meet, but I did it eventually, I may go over it with another layer just to make sure it all holds together (can I do that?).

Fulling the felt was the hardest part for me, I got help from my boyfriend who is much stronger than I am.  Another thing I would like to learn is how to keep things straiter, so they don't bleed together as much, any advice is appreciated.  Not the greatest pic (took from my phone).

All of your work is lovely!

I am curious, what tool do you use to cut the swirls?

Awesome!  Thanks so much for the advice, I'd love to join the felt along Smiley

Hello There,

I am fairly new to felting.  I have gotten pretty good at needle felting but I'm still working on the wet felting.

I have 2 questions about making scarves:

1.  How much wool is really used?  I laid out 3 thin layers and when I was done you could see through it, but when I made it thicker it seems too thick.

and

2.  How do you form the edges so they are strait or whatever other shape you want them to be, how do you achieve that.

Any advice is much appreciated, I just moved and my internet is not hooked up yet but when it is I will post pictures.

Thanks!

Megan
