I decided I probably won't make a whole felted garland for a Christmas decoration but will likely just buy it.
(We'll see if Anthro sends me my %15 off coupon for my birthday again this year.)
But the truth is...most of the times I make something, its not the actual end product that I want as much as just to participate in the process of learning and making-- which is why a lot of my projects only get 80% finished. By 80% I am sort of satisfied with the experience and ready to move on to something else.
At any rate, I was itching to try felting anyway, so I made some little felt beads, which will hopefully make an appearance in Avery's stocking as a necklace.
I followed this method (except I used some wool roving...which is more like yarn than batting) and really...wet felting could not be easier, especially if all you are doing is making balls. I am already thinking of other felted ball projects I'd love to make.
A mobile for our baby boy perhaps?
With everything going on in our lives right now, I really don't have time for crafts, but my hands (and brain) need the diversion.
But that's a whole other post;)
