More Felting

A group of us got together and held a mini felting group. Our first meeting was on Friday afternoon. After some show and tell and discussions, I decided to roll up my figurative sleeves and make a piece of felt for a book cover from the CNCH 2014’s Return to Sender that I never spun up.

Felt_FrontGinger was nice enough to provide a batt of some unknown wool as my core. On the front, I layered on the brown, teal, and pink. We then stretched 2 silk hankies over the entire face before I squiggled on some handpainted iIelandic singles/finger roving.

Felt_BackOn the back, I layered on the chartreuse. There really wasn’t enough of it to get good coverage.

I think the original unfelted dimension was around 18-20″x30-36″. The finished dimension is 13″x24″. Much larger than I wanted. Next time, I won’t be so lackadaisical about just grabbing something and just DO it. A little more planning might have served me well here. But, it was a last minute decision and I’m glad to have done it. Otherwise, this roving would have sat stagnant in my stash forever.
