“Am invited to show my wall hangings at a gallery in Winston so had to make something to wear to “stand out” as a felter. Kinda like all those gorgeous designs you see on Pinterest with descriptions you can’t read cause who knows what language it is. Anyway this was my attempt at “fashion”. Thank you Marie for all your Wooly Wednesday “tips””

Steve Whalen is felting with his wife, Erin, and we were so happy to receive this submission for this hat he made! His hats weigh 4.5 – 5oz and are wet felted over a resist, and then shaped on a hat block. This one is made with Living Felt MC-1 Felting Batts True Violet and accented with Multi-Colored Merino Top Cranberry.
A note from Erin:
“I consider myself extremely lucky to have a hubby who spins, weaves and now, wet felts! We’ve taken several wet felting classes together and have since modified and improved our techniques.
We’ve recently started making wet felted hats over a resist. This is my husband’s latest hat. I’m a little biased, but I think his work is fabulous! It’s amazing how straight he can get the brim. (Real men DO wet felt – LOL!!)”

Sammie Choy in Honolulu shared her super fabulous nuno felted neck warmer following our free video tutorial. Look at all of the texture in this beautiful piece and how wonderfully her chosen colors play together.
“I really enjoyed watching your tutorial and decided to follow your color scheme. Here’s my version.”

If you prefer written instructions, this is the same process outlined in detailed photos and written direction for 3 different wraps in our PDF tutorial available here.
This marvelous needle felted ring was made by Sandra Glover Clarke of Canada! We really like the shape of it and the materials used with the contrast between the sleek, polished silver and the rough, vibrant wool. Great job, Sandra!
She needle felted it using Living Felt Merino Cross Batt Sorbet and Living Felt 38 gage Needles.
Thank you for sharing, Sandra!
