1  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / First attempt at nuno felting on: December 24, 2009 06:39:43 AM

It's not perfect, but it's a start! I watched a few video tutorials on YouTube before giving this a go, and I think I might be addicted now.

A few things I learned:
Nuno felting requires more wool than you may think. I've always heard that it doesn't require much wool at all, but I think that's just relative to what is required in wet felting. I had a few bare places in the piece because I didn't lay enough wool down.
Nuno felting requires patience and strong triceps, two things I don't have a lot of. I'm working on it, though!
Nuno felting shrinks. A lot. My scarf ended up a little short. On the dress form it looks okay, but it's definitely too small to wear.

I'm going to try another one soon, but with different fabric and more wool.  Wink

I love both of these! I especially love the shawlette. I have some vintage fingering weight yarn in my stash that would be perfect for this project. Thanks for sharing!

I've never tried stenciling before but my one of the gals in my craft group told me about making stencils out of contact paper, so I decided to give it a shot.

Here's the stencil after I cut it out:

And here's Pee Wee in all his glory:

I posted a tutorial and sources of stencils on my blog. You can view it here:

Thanks for taking a peek! Smiley
