felting Friday

Well I typed out  and downloaded photos only to have them disappear !!  Trying again.

Spend a couple of hours this morning wet felting.  A friend gave me the dearest little painters tray so I used it , layer of bubble wrap, two layers of wool roving, some "fluffed" linen wool pieces, and a silk hankie. Wet it down with my water and soap, another layer of bubble wrap , my trusty new toy the potato masher.  Fun and fast way to go with a small project .  After about 15 minutes of mashing I rolled it up in the bubble wrap and took it to my boot tray (love this little guy too) and rolled it for another 20 minutes, then fulled it in the sink for a few minutes.  I am so happy with the results.  I am going to use this piece to make a couple of little tea light holders (the little plastic ones) although you could make it to fit a glass votive holder and use real tea lights too. This piece of felt will be thin enough for the light to flicker through it.  I will post a photo or two when I get them done.

Thanks for stopping by!  J
