Calling all wool-felters! I need helpful ideas! (Especially you, Diber, since I know you do this kind of thing.)
Today at Salvation Army, I saw this sweater. I despise orange, although I might consider wearing a mottled, autumn orange like this. But this sweater has moth holes in it. I convinced the girl to sell it to for $1. Because I had a plan...
It's an X-large, so even though there are some pin holes in the front, the whole back panel is perfect. And I want to wash and/or dry it (it's 100% wool), turning it into felt, and make some fun, beautiful autumnal project with it!
Here are some felted wool pics I found on Google. A hat? I have the wrong shaped head for hats, but a felted one would probably conform nicely.
Oooh -- aren't these ADORABLE?! Felted acorns! Not very practical. Like I care. Hmm. I'll probably end up with lots of wool, and making a few of these might just happen. If I can send Julia on a hunt for some acorn caps.
Isn't this lovely? (I'm picturing it in orange....)
And this is cute too! There were TOO MANY cute ideas for projects online. Help me decide! Please leave a comment and tell me what project you'd recommend. I like working without patterns, being creative. I'd love to do something in a pumpkin shape. I sew and crochet, so I can combine those skills in the project too.
And if you've done felted wool, please tell me exactly how to do it, and about how much wool I'll end up with, after I do whatever I need to do to that sweater. As you can tell, I'm THOROUGHLY IGNORANT right now.
