My latest fascination (or obsession as some would call it), is felting. After attending a free class run by the County Council, I have been scouring the charity shops - and my mother's wardrobe - for pure woollen items that I can shrink in my washing machine. I found some too! The felting process is a bit hit and miss and you can never be sure whats going to come out of the washing machine - that's part of the fun though. This ipod cover was made from a wool blanket and teddy from a shetland wool jumper (remember those?)
Friends are becoming very wary of what they wear around me now - I had my eye on a cashmere sweater my friend's husband was wearing last weekend. I'm gripped though - it's great fun. watch this space for future felted creations.
