Felt ideas

    Follow these steps with us to make a felt bowl.


    We started with a circle resist 17cm across, some wool tops, some decorative fibre and some bubble wrap.

    First lay a layer of wool over the top of the resist.

    Add a second layer of wool running in a different direction.

    We added some surface decorations

    Wet and flip the wool and resist.

    We added some sneaky decorations on the inside.

    Fold the wool around the edges of the resist.

    Here we have the wool all folded in around the resist and ready to finish wetting.

    Cover with netting and rub down the surface. We have used a lid from a plastic container.

    Work the edges to make them neat.

    Roll up in the bubble wrap and then roll back and forwards.

    Cut a small hole in one side.

    Pull out the resist and massage the felt to shape up the pot. Our shaping resulted in a surprise whale's tail (we were at the beach).

    Stuff the pot with plastic bags and leave to dry.

    And there you have it! A pot with a whale tail decoration.

    This is a high speed demonstration. We run workshops to teach people how to make felt.
