Recently, in the post about May Faire, I told you that I would share how to make a felted wool vest like the one Bracken was wearing in the pictures that day. So here it is, a few weeks belated.
Some of you might remember that I’ve shared how to make a felted wool vest here before (in this post from November 2012, with links to pictures of other felted wool vests that I’ve finished, if you’d fancy some more inspiration.) I wanted to write a new post because I wanted to share more pictures of the process this time. (Even though it’s a very simple process, pictures are always nice, aren’t they? I’m a visual person so I always appreciate them.) At Holiday Market sometime in November, our friend brought us a merino wool sweater that he had accidentally shrunk. He held it up to me and asked “would you make something with this?” Yes!! So grateful for the gift, I took it home and put it in the washing machine a second time to shrink it some more because I wanted it to be small enough to fit Bracken. This time I took pictures of the process.
