This past Saturday I took a wet felting workshop.
On the agenda was making a beautiful felted square... for lack of a better description, to learn the basic techniques of wet felting.
We also made a felted bead and a rock. I'm surprised at how much I like the rock. It's so interesting from a texture and weight standpoint having the light spongy wool covering the heavy rock. I've already collected a few more rocks with the intent of felting them as well.
I came home and made a few more squares.
(This ones my favorite)
(It makes me think of the ocean a little bit)
I even gave my mom a quick tutorial on Mother's Day- and this is what she ended up making.
If you're curious about wet felting here's a nice tutorial I found. Some of the details of the process are a little different (we used water with soap already dissolved in it and didn't use the sushi mat- we just tossed the felt around on the bubble wrap) but the basic techniques are the same.
