Oh boy, what a work. But it was worth the effort, I think. First, i made a nuno felted scarves, white merino wool on ponge silk. So far, so good. But the result came out a bit boring and very massive. So I remembered this technique I saw in a book and tried it. I cut out the leaves from a paper pattern and then machinestitched it in a free style. The scarve looks very fragile, but it isn't, cause the silk and stiches hold the felt together. It's a really fun wear, I decided to keep it for myself!

So classy! I love the "natural" look of the leaves, and you're right, the scarf does look delicate. That's an elegant accessory!

Wow that is very eye catching.  I would love a beautiful scarf like that! 
I agree, I would keep it for myself too, thats for sure.  I will have to look up the term wetfelting, I am intrigued now.  I love the thread detailing that you did aswell.

I agree with all of the above. It looks nice and warm. Are the leaves cut out in long pieces or one by one?

That looks gorgeous!  Had to google nuno felting to find out what it was.  One more thing to add to the "must-try" list. Tongue

Wow, that is sophisticated and chic - something I thought I'd never say about a felted item.  I'm tempted to have a go at felting now.

It makes the scarf seem less heavy. Really lovely.

Thank you for all the compliments. They make me blush!

I did cut out the leaves one by one (with a small pair of scissors). It wasn't the nicest job on earth and it took me ages, but hey, the work had to be done!

You can try to make a scarf like this yourself, it doesn't have to be nuno felted, any a flat piece of felt will do. Just pin a pattern on the felt, trace the lines with a pen, cut out all parts you don't want en then go loose with your sewing-machine (I have a ordinary machine, so I got dizzy making lots of rounds). I think this technique is a good manner to handle scarves that are too heavy and massive. But you need a lot of patience and time. Maybe I'll try another one next year!
