Felt

Felted hearts

At home I have a few felted hearts I made last winter. I made them as a reminder to be kind to myself. That I do not always need to set high standards for myself. That I may well take care of myself.
It all comes together in this heart shape, the soft wool and bright colors.

My friend liked them so much, she wanted one for her birthday. So I made her three in her favourite colour, green. She was very pleased when I gave them last week. 
Made of merinowool and some silk fibers.














Felted cover for iPad/tablet

For my tablet, I've felted this cute sleeve made of merino wool and a little silk. It's very soft, but also very strong. The sleeve provides good protection when the tablet is in my bag. 
I chose bright spring colors in this dark winter season to cheer me up.

Felted raw fleece

At a workshop I've learned how to felt raw fleece. This cloth is the result.

With raw wool (right from a sheep, not combed, not carded, nor washed) I felted this very warm cloth. The wool comes from about seven Dutch sheep breeds, in Dutch: Drents Heideschaap, Blauwe Texelaar, Bont schaap, and a few I lost their names of. It has become a beautiful sample with all kinds of wool. It fits on a pouffe that I made ​​myself years ago.

Felted cloth made of raw fleeces of different breeds of Dutch sheep.

The wool is so beautiful, I have plenty of ideas to make more with it. 







Green felted blanket

This is a small felted blanket with an old shawl in the middle. 
Originally it was intended as a big scarf, but the cloth is a little too thick to wrap around the shoulders. Next time I will use less wool. 
Now it is a fine thin blanket, nice and warm to cover my legs with, sitting on the couch. The blanket has beautiful warm colors, is very soft and has a wavy edge.
