Today I have taken the dye pots out again and I'm busy dying wool tops for felting. All of a sudden it's what every one wants. I love felting too and am busy with a felted project for the December issue of Stitches. I thought I'd post a tutorial on making felted beads here today.
We’ve made a necklace using felted beads before but here is a different way to make them. Most methods of making felt involve a fair amount of work but this way uses your tumble dryer to do the work for you.
What you’ll need
Good kitchen scale
Old stocking or pantyhose
A bowl of hot water (not too hot – you’ll be putting your hands in it)
Dish washing liquid
Beading thread (dental floss works well too)
Once you have made all the felt beads you want, leave them to dry and then string them into a one of a kind necklace.
