The Last Pre-Felt Scarf For Awhile (I Promise!)- Part 2

Stitching the pieces together with nylon thread.



Placing bubble wrap between the two layers...

...prior to felting. 
 
Wetting out the piece and beginning to roll.

 
Fulling the nearly completed scarf.

 
The finished scarf...

 
...with sections of colors in different shapes...

 
...depending on which part of the layout they came from.



This infinity scarf is quite long...

...and can be wrapped several times around the neck for warmth.

 
Because of the very thin layers of pre-felt that I used...

...this finished scarf is quite soft and light...

...despite the fact that it is very long (total length= approx. 80 inches).

After felting, fulling and rinsing...

...I removed the nylon stitches and gave it a good pressing with an iron...

...to neaten it and bring out its lovely felted texture.

Next time: for a change of pace...

...jewelry!

It's lovely Heather! The colours are so warm, and being soft and light I can imagine it would be lovely to snuggle round your neck on a cold day.

Rachel--Thanks! I love them, too!
Deborah--It was a going away present for a very special co-worker, so I hope that wearing it feels a bit like a hug! :)

Szkoda , że mieszkasz tak daleko, chętnie bym się z Tobą umówiła na wspólne filcowanie.

Karolina--Oh, wouldn't that be fun?!? One day, I hope it will be possible to make felt together!
Mattie--Thank-you! XO-

I love how the different shades interact and blend with each other, almost like watercolor painting. Can't wait to see your felted jewelry!

This technique with sewing and nylon is great, I have to try that to.... Some day :))
Great scrarf Heather, have a lovely weekend.

Heather Woollove said...

Vivian--Thank you!! I was trying something new, blending colors myself, instead of using variegated roving (which is easier for me)!
Janine--Nylon thread is wonderful, since it will not 'felt into' the piece and can easily be removed when the project is fully felted.

Absolutely lovely!! I love the colors, so cheerful and sunny. And I know for a fact how soft and warm it will be. :)

Heather Woollove said...

Sandie--Yes, this one is so long, it can be wrapped and wrapped for warmth! :)
