I was learning how to do wet felting on Monday. As with anything worth knowing , it takes time, patience and skill. The skills are learned as you go along. Gypsy Felting explains a way of doing wet felting which is straight forward and easy to follow. I particularly appreciated the cultural and historical information she gave as she takes you through a method of wet felting. We were doing it slightly differently. The slipper I was making didn't work but I turned the felt into a purse which I really love. This video has given me some clues as to where I went wrong. Since I took the photo I have added another felt flower on the back of my purse. . Not a bit of that failed slipper was wasted. That pleased me enormously because it was a lot of hard work and I really like the look of the fabric I had made.
