Earrings made from felt are light to wear and can be embellished with embroidery and beads to make unique jewellery.
Because wool takes dye so well you can obtain colours from muted to bright making felt the perfect background to achieve any look you want, be it subtle or vibrant.
Embroidery threads come in sumptuous hues too not to mention the variety of glass beads you can get to add texture and sparkle. The mixture of wool felt, glass beads, embroidery and your imagination you can create little works of art.
A couple of weeks a go I spent a very enjoyable afternoon crafting, with my friend Sue. Sue invited me round to her house for a wet felting session! Sue was wet felting but asked if I'd tried dry felting, I haven't but love to try any new craft technique.
Sue produced the tools for the dry felting: a needle felting tool, which has sharp barbed needles inside a plastic sleeve; a needle felting brush, this allows the needles to go through the fibers, without damaging the table; a piece of white felt and I brought my own stash of wool tops (roving).
