1  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Has anyone felted a pillow for daily use? on: August 12, 2009 07:44:11 AM
Lately I've been mulling over the idea of felting a pillowcase for my sleeping pillow.  I LOVE fuzzy pillows to sleep on and although I've seen many decorative felt pillows I haven't seen one meant for the kind of use that a sleeping pillow would get.

I would use the softest possible wool of course: merino and alpaca (and some angora if possible) and I'm considering the possibility of nuno felting it to add a bit more strength without ending up with a really thick pieces of felt.

Has anyone else done such a thing?  How did it work out for you?

Hi all,

I'm a brand new felter and I've been lurking around the site for a few weeks now.  So far I've dabbled a little in needle felting, wet felted a scarf and wet felted a cellphone case.  Did I mention I'm brand new to felting?  lol  I've done quite a bit of polymer clay and wire and chainmaille jewelry but I'm really finding that I love felting.  The feel of the fiber is just amazing!

It's been very interesting looking at all the wonderful work posted here and I've really enjoyed looking at the past felt alongs.  Just wondering if there is another one planned for any time soon?  I'd really like to participate in one!
