At work, we've all gone a bit felting mad! It all started because I found a source of the most exquisite, 100% Nepalese wool felt. Coloured sliver, felting needles and foams and the whole regalia soon followed.
Anyway, last night at our weekly Wednesday craft group after my sewing machine decided not to play nicely with the project I intended to work on, I decided to have a play, and made a red rose for my hair out of the wool felt instead.
It is cut and shaped by hand, and came together quite quickly. No felting required in the end, but the soft, thick felt moulds beautifully into shape.
I love it! :) And I still have enough red felt left over to make another one, and this time take some photos of the process, and even make a pattern!
(Note: seeing my grey hair in a photo is quite the challenge! I am torn between colouring it out and sticking to my "grow old gracefully" stance.What to do?! Is anyone else in this bind?)
