Fantastic Felt Class


Yesterday Elisabeth from Sewciety had arranged a felting afternoon at her house, so along with my daughter and a friend and her family we descended on poor Elisabeth’s house.  Not sure she knew what she was letting herself in for with us all trying to do everything at once, she was run ragged sorting out the adults (making wet felted slippers and tea cosies) and the children (making felt sheets, balls and cupcakes).  It was fantastic though, we were made so welcome, and nothing was too much trouble.

For once I actually took my camera & I thought I’d show you a few photos of what took place.

As you can see we had a great time, and best of all we each made something lovely to bring home.  Sadly I forgot to take a photo of my tea cosy after it was just felted, however today, after it had dried out and I’d embellished it with my sewing machine, I did take a couple of photos:



Now I need to go and buy a lovely teapot for it to keep warm!
