Thank you Ruth. The camera just doesn't see what your eye can see does it? I hope the angled shot gives a rough idea though.
Toggle Commented 5 days ago on Textured Felt at rosiepink
Hello Leslie - there is no roving put on top of the small pieces. The pieces were placed on top of 4 layers of loose merino fibres then when it was all felted together, the white fibres 'gripped' the cut edges of the pieces. Try making a small sample to see how it works.

Thanks Zed. When you look at it, your eyes can see the texture but the camera does tend to flatten it when you take a straight on shot - pity.

Thank you Karen. Yes, the texture is wonderful - it's a shame that it doesn't show in face-on photo as it does in 'real life'.

Thank you Marilyn. I'm so easily distracted too - there are so many projects that keep popping into my head but so little time!

Thank you Merryl. Some felters use old net curtains - we use tutu net as we find it easiest.
Thank you for your lovely feedback Silvi!
Thank you for your kind feedback Heidi!
Many thanks for your positive feedback and we're happy that you like the tut.
Thank you Shona :) I think it's fun to have a play with paints and other drawing materials, it can quickly open up lots of new ideas. As does chopping up big bits of felt and rearranging and reusing them! Endless creative possibilities! :)
Thank you Deborah. The tape with tabs poking out sounds like a good idea, but where I had an irregular pattern (rather than traditional squares) it wasn't the outside edges that were hard to follow but the meandering inside tracks. I had hoped that when the thin plastic buckled it would be easy - not so. I really like the marble effect too - it's thanks to the trilobal nylon put on top of the dry wool fibres. I messed up small amounts of it between my fingers then put it down like bits of candyfloss.
Hello Liz - by the time the wool has been passed from one carder to the other several times, it seems to act as one piece of wool and just lifts off as one.
Thank you Zed!
Thank you Marilyn. I didn't cut the resist to remove it - just lifted it away in one piece. If I'd done squares (as in the video tutorial) I think it would have been easier!
Thank you Ann. No, there wasn't any puckering at all - the whole piece lays dead flat - maybe because I took the felting and fulling slowly?
Thank you Teri. I found locating the channels extremely difficult with the thinner resist - I wish I had thought of inserting chopsticks!
Thank you Ruth - it was very frustrating to keep parting the felt knowing that if I had wanted the pieces to bond, they wouldn't have!
Thank you Marilyn! Me too, who knows where I'll end up with some of it! It's fun to just play and enjoy the journey sometimes isn't it :)
Thanks Teri! Glad you like the pics, and I'm relieved that it's not just me with stacks of UFOs! :)
You're welcome - felt made from merino wool is very soft on the skin.
Hello Janet - we're glad you're pleased with the tutorials and it's great that you adapted the bag one for a tea-cosy!
