Felted Infinity Scarf Made From Fiber Leftovers

                   
                                           Hand-carded batts from various leftover bits of fiber.


                              Laying out a portion of the carded fiber to form a large rectangle...


                                                     ...in preparation for making a pre-felt.


                                         Because I used so many colors in the batt preparation...


                                              ...depending on how you wear this scarf...


                                                            ...it has a different 'look'!


                             (Note: the large basting stitches were removed after this photo was taken)


                                                                 The finished scarf.


                                                   While my felting friends were visiting...

                            ...we decided to play around with preparing and using handmade pre-felts.

                                           Remembering this project...

                                      ...we set out to make a couple of 'pierced' infinity scarves.

                                      Unfortunately, I felted this one a bit too long before making the cuts...

                                           ...and got slits, rather than oval holes this time. :(

                                        I do like the way that the colors change, though...

                                        ...because it makes for quite a versatile scarf!

Lovely! I bet with the cold weather this season, you have been getting lots of wear out of your felted pieces!

The slits make for an interesting effect, don't they! Very textural...

Thanks, Deborah! It's wonderful, isn't it, what can be made from the 'saddest' of cobbled together scraps, isn't it?!?
Rachel-Yes, I do like taking advantage of the special properties of pre-felt in this way!
