First felting project
Wow, who knew this would be so much fun? This is the scarf I made. You can't really see the texture, but it has so much texture! I took a silk scarf I'd dyed more than a year ago, laid yellow and orange wool roving criss-cross on the scarf, and felted away. I'm surprised it actually worked. I don't usually do things right the first time. I have a large piece of felt in the dryer right now that I want to make into a bag or something. I'll have to see when it comes out. It's a lot of fun to do. And the texture on the scarf is neat because the wool shrinks and puckers the fabric, so it has this gorgeous shirred look.
Oh, and I'm going to name the puppy Quila (keela). Going with the theme, as Kerry suggested in her comments on Quila's picture! Thanks so much, Kerry!
