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.

girls1 The children (plus I managed to catch Elisabeth when she wasn’t looking!)

jon1 Louise’s hubby Jon and his slippers before they were cut.

girls2 The girls after they’d raided Elisabeth’s box of felted jumpers.

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!

  1. Was it needle felting or the type when you put wool in the washing machine? Ive been trying to find a class for this in Edinburgh but failing miserably and Im still confused about exactly how to do it. Your teacosy looks great! x

  2. Looks like a time was had by all. This is something I'd love to try - have been having fun with the knitting then felting yarn but want to progress.
