Adventures in Wet Felting
I've taken the plunge! After admiring and reading about wet felting for what seems like ages now I've finally given it a go. And I must say I'm impressed with myself. Either I'm some kind of amazingly crafty lady who can master any medium in no time, or wet felting is a pretty simple craft. Well, maybe it's a little of each!
I'm way too new at this to start giving tutorials, but here's a few pictures of how I created a leaf pouch (which isn't finished yet, btw)
Here's my fibers all laid out, ready to be wet down:
Here's the leaf starting to come together:
And, here's a picture of all the felting I did today, including the leaf in the above pictures:
So, I'm pretty excited about this wet felting experience. I've got lots and lots of ideas for things to felt up! There's just not enough time in the day!
