Felting



i've been learning how to felt. this is my first felted project. felting is knitting something in wool and then purposely shrinking it in the washer. with warm water and agitation the fibers start to cling to one another and end up creating a whole new fabric. sue got me the book Felted Knits for my birthday and it is a great book for first time felters.


this is the bag before felting
