Step 1: Getting ready
I ran it through the the washer on a hot/cold cycle with something in the washer to help agitate the fibers like tennis balls or sneakers. This is a form of wet felting and it will set the sweaters yarn making it ready to pin felt.
Step 2: Cutting into a shape
- I removed the sleeves and the shoulder area of the sweater.
- Then I trimmed the arm holes close to the seam so it looks like it is a finished seam.
- Saved the sleeves for later projects.
Step 3: Sewing
Step 4: The fun! Time to pin felt
Step 5: Making shapes and adding color!
- you and add more roving if it is too thin.
- I balled a small amount of roving in my palms for the small round spots
- I twisted 2 colors together for a different look
- I wanted to layer my circles and one area I wanted the color to be under an existing so I used a mason jar ring as a guide.
