One of our very own, Kimberly Ayers our Bath & Body editor wants to learn to felt and I am so impressed. She sent me a couple of pictures of her adorable little dolls she made, (these are not Felted) and I think you will all agree that they are sweet.It is very rewarding when one is inspired by something your write about and try the craft themselves.Kim says; I really want to learn how to felt!Â I just love all the pictures that you post on the Felting blog.Â Is there an easy way to start?Â
Kim, maybe you can try a kit. I found this one for a reasonable price at Outback Fibers. Felt Kits for new felters or teachers who need a felt kit for teaching classes.
Let us help you make your beginning felting experience enjoyable and successful! The kit includes all the necessary items for two projects.
Complete Outback Felting Kit includes:
Â· Outback Fibers Merino wool roving in various colors for two complete projects
Â· Bamboo mat–12″ X 17″
Â· Nylon mesh fabricÂ
Â· Step by step instructions
Iâ€™m making little dolls that were inspired by the “Doteeâ€™s dolls â€“ Iâ€™m hoping that I can learn how to felt and try making them that way too.
Thanks Kim for sharing with us!
