We love how beautifully this scarf and the flowers came out!
“Attempted nunofelting a large flower onto a silk gauze. I am happy with it as a first attempt. I only did one end of the scarf so I can learn something before I start the other end.
I followed Marie Spaulding’s instructions [to avoid puckering] – cold water, rub and roll, no wad or throw, no cold/hot rinse.
I only added one improvisation, which is ironing while still wet from the reverse.
Update: my pansies scarf is now officially finished on both sides, I am adding more progress and finished photos. Thank you for your lovely feedback!”

This wonderful photo album is an heirloom piece celebrating many generations. See below for more detail on the making of this piece.
“Tried something new as a gift for my daughter’s wedding. Felted old stuff from Moms, Grandmas and Great-Grandmas for a photo album.
I took this picture so Amelia can identify the different things and, who’s they were, in the cover.
Lay out of pieces over three thin layers of roving. I added bits of wool between them… just like Marie has taught in her Nuno felting video.”
This is how it looked once wet felted
Anna top stitched and included the initial of each person from whom the piece came from in the design, and added embellishments from the jewelry and notions.

Astounding, Remarkable, Brilliant! Sonja shared in our fb group how she made this INCREDIBLE hat!!! It took a lot of finagling, but she really pulled it off!
“So i made a hatter jacket to go with the hatter hat. Nuno felt and i have a love hate relationship.
I love the potential but never seem to have enough control (or space). This uses silk chiffon dyed with coffee, asparagus merino, merino luxury batt in forest, and the Autumn leaves artist pack. I adapted the pattern from a Russian dress pattern. Please excuse my sad hatter makeup and selfie timer portrait session.”
