Felting


I am really interested in felting lately. It sounds super easy and a great craft to do with my 3-year-old son. I got some beautiful wool yarn for Christmas and I went on a 100% wool sweater shopping spree at the thrift store. And I've still got a tub of dyed roving. So now... I'm just trying to figure out what to make! I'd like to make some felted balls for the baby. I've read that you can save the clear plastic windows from your bills to put inside a felt ball which makes a nice crinkly sound. And a bell inside a pill bottle covered in felt for a jingle ball. Other than that, I'm not quite sure what to make! Maybe a hat? Any other ideas?

I found this nice webpage on felting thrift store sweaters at Craftsylish.
A webpage on felting.
And another webpage with a list of different felt toys you can make.
A cool fiber arts webpage talking about felting.

Wish me luck!

Sarah-is that your yarn in the picture? It looks lovely!!

Yep, it is! My second spool was much thicker, so I'm afraid my yarn is a little lop-sided! :-)
