Purple Felfs from Becca's Crazy Projects

 
Last week I finished up this pair of felfs. I determined each of these felfs takes about 70 grams of yarn. That meant the two 50 gram balls of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in purple wasn't enough to make the pair. I worked through one of the balls and switched to the lighter, heathered yarn for the remainder. 
These felted up beautifully! 
Such a fun pair of felted slippers! The best way to fit a pair of felted slippers is to put them on when they are still damp. That way they can stretch to fit your ...

How I’ve Kept My Sanity: Crafting Through Misdiagnosis… (Part 2) from Eric the Quilter

Nuno Felting!

Yes, Nuno Felting is so much fun! I started working on them when I got really sick from my negligent doctors, but now I am up and running with them! (My white blood cell count is now within normal range!!!!) They were so much fun to make, and it was nice, because when I was sick, it allowed me the chance to make something in stages, instead of all at once. I could felt it over 2 or 3 days, and it was a great experience! It’s not exactly the fastest thing in the world, but it ...

Purple Felfs from Becca's Crazy Projects

Felfs in the making! This is really simple knitting. Worked flat on big needles. 
Then sewn up into a foot-like shape. These are made to be mirror images.
This is the basic shape once sewn up. I hope those lines show up nicely after felting. 
I wanted to show the size before and after felting. These are made with Sheep's Pride and felt up nicely, even if they do need a couple trips through the wash cycle to get down to a slipper size. I'm going to make some using Knit Picks Wool of the Andes next. I ...

Colorful Felfs from Becca's Crazy Projects

Several years ago I purchased The Art of Felfs by Cat Bordhi
I pulled out some Lamb's Pride and knit up another pair. I also knit up a test square using a different yarn. If you have the pattern, this little square is how you make your felt swatch so you can calculate how many stitches you need for your slippers. It's brilliant, really. They look terribly large before they get felted.  
One trip thought the wash in a zippered bag and the test square is perfect but the slippers need another trip through the wash. Felting is ...

Handi Felting Foot Kit from Gwen's Quilts

I’ve been having a blast creating new fabrics and projects using my felting foot on my Amara. The Handi Felting Foot Kit transforms your HQ longarm into a felting machine with infinite possibilities! It creates new fun you can have with your Handi Quilter machine. I must give you the Sewing Surgeon General’s warning: felting is addictive.

What is Felting?

The Handi Felting Foot Kit puts a modern twist on an old way of creating embellished fabric by meshing fibers together so they interlock and become one. The kit includes a needle body that holds 5 barbed needles ...

I’ve Been Nuno Felting from Eric the Quilter

I was in Minnesota for the past 2 weeks, just running amok… well, not really running, and not really amok either. I just visited some people, and hung out at my friend’s house most of the time. Lot’s of outdoor walks, and socially distanced brunches. It was lovely.

Now, while I was at my friend’s house, we made some Nuno felted scarves. If you don’t know what Nuno felting is, here’s the quickest answer: it’s when you take loose feltable fibers and embed them in sheer fabric. Now of course, I wouldn’t just ...

Mini Felted Knit Bowls from Quilts + Color

y
I enjoyed knitting these little bowls. It started as I needed something to knit while I watched the football game to handle the stress of the game.
It continued until I had knit all 6 bowls while watching TV. 
I had no idea if the yarn I was using would work, but it certainly did.
Aren't they cute?
This is what they look like before I felt them. I have arranged them in the same color order and show both sets on a grid so you can see the size before and after.
If you go back to ...
