DIY: Wet felt purse!

My mum is a wonderful wet felter! She loves it and I think it loves her too..
She taught me how to make these adorable little purses so I thought I'd share it with you too:)

What you'll need:
about 20grams of Merino Wool (Usually good craft stores sell it but we buy ours in bulk from Scotland from Twist Fibre)
2 Sheets of bubble wrap- around 50cm long and 40cm high
Lots of towels- Things are going to get wet!
A bar of soap
And warm water
(And any decorations you may want!!)

And you're finished! I'm using mine as a make-up bag because I am ALWAYS loosing mine!
I was using a plastic bag (you know- the one's you get at the airport to put your liquids in), it was very dear to me... Until it became all holey therefore I was loosing EVEN more than I was before, so we said goodbye! But to a purse like this- So I don't mind!!!

Good luck everyone It's such fun!

  4. Hi - I'm wondering if you could tell me how long it would take to wet felt a small purse like this one?

  5. Another question! I live in an apartment and don't have a lot of space - I am thinking of setting up a craft table to wet felt. Do you think this would work?
