Me and my love for stipes and free yarn (lambs pride, it's roving and yarn is fab!) Since my washing machine has no delicate cycle and my mum was worried about me messing up the washer i did it by hand. Now I know Im insane to do it, but its a good anger release, regardless of the fact that my arms are kiling me..


In the process:

and Viola! Finished product:

I have to line it and put a zipper in it and its into use it goes!

Hi there thevampirehanna,

Although your project looks wonderful, it's not the type of project we discuss and feature in this section of craftster.

Check out this Felt FAQ

And this discussion we had last week

Generally knit then "felt" projects go in the knitting section, but we're trying to drum up support for a knit then felt board. If you'd also like a knit then felt board, check out this post and add your voice.
I do believe it is a craft in it's own right and many people do it.

Congrats. I felted a little swatch once by hand just to see if it would felt. My god, i got so bored and sick of it. Congrats on doing that whole thing by hand. And it turned out great.

thanks You!  The lambs pride is wonderful to work with, Ive been actually working with some roving from their factory and it too is wonderfull to spin with. Im sure you could find a dealer online!
