101  Re: Yarn Swap for Rapunzel Scarf Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Velvet Rose on: March 31, 2007 02:26:46 AM
Ok..... after weeks of agonising which scarf to make, I finally made 3 scarves in one afternoon.

The first one was called Gelato (being pink, lilac and yellow) and was made with 30 strands. (updated photos of next page of this thread).

My daughter saw me making the first one, and said she wanted a scarf, so I made her this one. I cut the 10 foot lengths in half so that it wouldn't be so long. There are 60 strands in this one and I actually prefer this thickness to the first one.



And here's the last one I made, with about 45 strands in it:





Normally I don't care for fun fur, but I have to say I think it looks wonderful in Rapunzel scarves!

I'm interested.

I can make:
Handmade Xmas Cards
Handmade non-Xmas cards
Rolled beeswax candles
Felted Soap
Felt beads kit
Felted flowers like the example below - lots of colours available



I can post more things on my list if that's not enough

A few questions:
1. Can we add food to the list of stuff we can make (like Xmas cookies etc?)
2.
After everyone has posted their lists do we get to say what our top picks are so we can be matched with a partner?

108  Re: Feltalong #9 - Finishing a needle felted hat using wet felting in Felting: Discussion and Questions by Velvet Rose on: October 08, 2006 04:50:50 AM
The hat I will be demonstrating a wet felted finish on was made from an Australian merino carded batt. (I often use batts for hats as they are quick to work with. They also give a good result too - as it is easier to get an even thickness all over the hat and it is much less likely that there will be thin spots.)

The hat was needle felted on a foam form from Hooked on Felt.
http://www.hookedonfelt.com/forms.htm
I used a small short crown and the standard brim.



It was needlefelted for about 3 hours but was still a bit puffy and fluffy when I took it off the form. you can see in the photo below that it has quite a bumpy surface. Merino takes a long time to needle felt as it is a fine fibre.


MATERIALS LIST

You will need:
- a waterproof work surface with access to hot & cold water (a sink with a ridged draining board is ideal)
- a medium sized squeeze bottle OR hard plastic bottle with holes punched in the lid - it needs to be able to withstand high water temperatures without buckling or melting
- environmentally friendly liquid soap OR washing up detergent
-your foam hat form covered with 2 plastic shower caps to make it waterproof OR hard plastic hat form (available from Hatshapers - www.hatshapers.com)
- Small piece of bubble wrap (slightly larger than your hand)
- A wooden hat block would be a bonus but not essential.

STEP 1
1) If you have not already done so, gently pull your needlefelted hat off the foam form. Check and repair for any weak spots.

2a) If you have a plastic hat form place your hat on this and put it on your work surface.

2b) If you do not have a plastic hat form, cover your foam hat form with 2 or more thin plastic shower caps so that none of the foam is exposed. (It is not the end of the world if it get wet, but it weakens & softens the foam over time and it takes ages to dry afterwards).  Place your hat on the covered form and put it on your work surface.
