Felted Soap Dispensers

While watching a video about making felted bracelets, How to Make Felt Bracelets : Wet Felting Tips, I noticed the presenter was using a felted soap dispenser. So, I paused the video and scurried off to felt the soap dispenser in the kitchen. Next, I felted the one in my bathroom. Pretty cool. They are easy to make and easy to clean, just soap them up and rinse off. Great gift idea!

Hmmm... what can I felt next?

Nuno Felting Demo

I gave a nuno felting demo at the fabulous Beach CITE Studios' open house last Saturday. "CITE" stands for "community interactive teaching experience" and the facility is dedicated to teaching the arts to the community. Here I am, laying out a scarf, "Cherry Blossoms." About 30 people came through and there were lots of questions. Nuno felting isn't a process that is easy to understand - it took me a while to really understand it, and this was after I had been doing it a few months. Wool fibers tangle with silk to create a new fabric.
