We have been felting with the girls, that is: Margaretka (older) was a chief designer and did some rubbing (the rest was done by mom). Mariettka made this coaster and apparently enjoyed playing with soapy water more than with fibres. Mum forgot to take picture of Margaretka’s soap, but here is Mariettka’s finished and slightly altered coaster:
Mom managed to felt around two soap bars
and today made her first flat felted piece – scarf! cca 90 x 27 cm.
I must tell I can’t take my eyes from the scarf, I am SO amazed by the felting process. How from this fine fibres you can in quite a short time make a fabric………. and there are so many possibilities to explore!
