Hello!

I’ve made a nice little camera case. It’s been a few months in the making simply because, unlike wet felt, knitting doesn’t need to be finished in one go.

Needle felt close up

This design is echoed on the other side - as seen above

Another close up

This came about because my mum gave me her odd ball stash. I loved this wool (all I know is that is 100% wool) and the naturally dyed colours so decided to initially make a bag for a little girl. I didn’t follow a pattern (or bother with a tension square – I know I’m lazy 😉 )  and didn’t cast on enough stitches so had to turn it into this camera case! It was a very good excuse for me to practice needle felting onto knitting as it isn’t something I’ve tried but have wanted to for ages. Next time I will be wet felting into knitting as I’m really excited to see what effects I’ll be able to achieve!

I used more natural fibres to needle felt into the knitting. I’m not sure what breed it is but it is naturally dyed roving. I would not use tops for this type of needlefelting because I reckon the extra ‘stabbing’ required would cause the knitting to pucker too much. Using roving minimises the amount of poking needed.

I still need to add a closure, and perhaps a lining (not sure yet). The closure will probably be a crocheted cord and a big button.

Good night all, sleep tight 🙂

My Mum came to visit recently, so naturally I tried making some boot shaped wet felted slippers for her!

As with my last slippers they are merino inner and finn outer. These ones are embellished with merino multicoloured pencil roving and multicoloured silk throwsters waste.

Here they are:

I have just edited my tutorial regarding this, but if you’re making your own be aware that if you want the slippers to fit further up your legs than the ones pictured, be generous in your allowance for width shrinkage.

Hi All!

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, it’s been a bit of a blur of working and being ill. I did make a birdy for the international day of felt so will post that soon.

Hope you’re all good, take care (there are lots of bugs going round at the moment!)
