light chain, olive soap or soap flakes, wool roving, towel, plastic to make a resist, bubblewrap foil.
I made the plastic resist from stiff plastic (3mm) and cut out a 'witch hat'.
The triangle is 7cm wide and 9cm high. I added a little extra (1cm) on the bottom as not to make the felt touch the other side.
If this sounds like Chinese, read on, you'll understand later!
Hold the end of the wool roving loosely in one hand and
gently pull off a section with your other hand. Hold your four fingers
against the pad of your palm, trap the wool there and pull firmly.
and the third one vertically again.
If you don’t have soap flakes, you can grate some from a bar of
olive oil soap with an old grater.
Pour hot water in the glass and let the soap melt a bit.
Then use the spoon to sprinkle some drops onto the roving.
If there are holes, you need to add a bit more roving before rubbing lightly.
my hands still while taking a picture. So this is an action shot! :)
Rub genlty onto the wool roving while it is on the bubblewrap.
When you feel that the fibers are more attached to each other
you can rub the other side and also rub it between your hands.
As soon as the fibers are attached, they won't attach
anymore when taking away the resist.
I usually just rinse it under the tab but used a bucket of water here.
the felted X-mas trees are mighty cute and are from ViltalaKim on Etsy
the round 'disc' is a ceramic piece made by me called 'infinity'
