So I finally finished another hip wrap!
This one has only a long string on one site. On the other side there is a button where the string will wrap around.

Sorry for the big pics. I can't upload them to craftster from this computer, and they are allready online...





and the back.

This wrap, and your other one, are so incredibly gorgeous. I would wear this all the time. I can't believe how lovely it is. I just wish I could felt, or wear felted things at all. Being allergic to wool is such a pain, I miss out on so much cute stuff! I probably shouldn't covet felted things so much. XD

did you know that you can "felt" with acrylic felt sheets? It's no where near as durable as wool or wool blend felt but it can be needle felted for fun shapes and patterns.


That's intresting!
I'm gonna try if bamboo will felt. I have 1 kilo lying around for spinning. But I'm curious if it will felt without the use of wool.

Oh no!
Don't waste your beautiful bamboo. It's won't felt on it's own.
Only wool & llama & alpaca etc, will felt.
You can add bamboo to the top layer and the wool below will hold it on
But bamboo alone will not felt.
