Awesome Fire Mountain Designer Pack Felted Ensemble

Nuno Felted Scarf and Wet Felted Hat by Sonja Weeks Oswalt featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

We challenged the ever-adventurous Sonja Weeks Oswalt of Tennessee to felt up anything she felt inspired to with our Fire Mountain Designer Pack, and she made this awesome ensemble.

She added approx. 2oz of additional fiber so she could make all 3 pieces. The scarf is nuno felted and the silk was initially dyed with Kool-Aid. The wrist warmers were wet felted over a resist, we have a free video lesson for this, and the hat was first wet felted flat and then shaped over a hat block.

The wrist warmers can shrink quite a bit!

The Blonde Bombshell

Beth Drucker calls this piece “The Blonde Bombshell.”


First I sketched in the face, then I figured out what kind of hair I wanted it to have. I drew the “hair” out separately on a piece of flat, felted wool fabric, then needle felted the dyed fiber/hair onto the felted wool fabric. I used a couching stitch to keep the wool in place. Then I hand-sewed the hair onto the denim jacket. The beret is velvet fabric attached with french knots. The face is painted and embroidered. There are also leather, crystals, beads, and nailhead trim embellishing the rest. It is lined with a re-cycled tablecloth.

The hair for this image was done with felted raw fiber dyed “blonde!”

We suggest stepping back a few steps to view the image. It’s really stunning!
