Last year I saw the most beautifully handfelted pair of slippers on Grazim's Etsy shop. I was instantly inspired to try hand felting. With the help of a great tutorial, I began learning this wonderful & rewarding craft. Like painting and pottery you do not pick up the brush or clay and make a masterpiece on your first try. There is an art form to molding the wool, soap and hot water into something beautiful. I have thrown out plenty of wool in my first attempts...but my initial frustration has been well worth it. I love to felt! I have an Etsy shop with some of my creations - katiecreated.etsy.com The felted flowers make great additions to knitwear. Sweater is Featherweight by Hannah Fettig.
