First Attempt At Felting..

July 29th, 2007

So as I promised, some blog action!

I finished knitting the rectangle to test on last night, and then this morning shoved the knitted rectangle into the washing machine in a pillowcase (as stated on a pattern I have for a felted bag). And then this evening I thought I might as well make it into something, so I sewn up the edges, added a button and little hook and it is now a case for whatever I want to put in it :p (it fits my camera in perfectly so may well be used for that!).

I’m going to have another go this week, but I think I’ll put some jeans in the wash with it too as I heard this aggravates it more, making it more felted.

I think this turned out ok, but it’s not as felted as I’d have liked… but that just means I’ll have to do some more experimenting! :)
