Felted Wool

October 24th, 2008 | Posted by Emma in All | Crafts - (0 Comments)

I’ve ventured into a new land…the land of felted wool! It’s a natural fit, as I’ve been saving and using fabric scraps from old clothing forever, but this is a new thing for me. It started with a few cute holiday projects in a craft magazine I bought at the airport! Now, I found Betz White’s book “Warm Fuzzies” and have a new respect for felted wool! Here is the project I started with:

I made a blue and red robin one for my son too, but he’s been carting it around the house so much I couldn’t find it for the photoshoot!

If you have any interest in felted wool you’ve got to check out this book! It has the cutest projects, great instructions and really inspiring photography! Usually I pick up a book to see what I could do to make the projects my own…this one, I want to make everything just like she did, they are so well done!! Check her out: www.betzwhite.com She has a blog too, I just discovered. I’m going to go read more there, it looks fun!

Oh, and I have to thank my mom for when I told her I was interested in felted wool, she brought me a bag of goodies, including the stunning little wings on this birdie! What a sweetie!
