Wet Felting During The Snow Storm

We had at least 26 inches of snow! It was so cool to see the least the first couple of days, attempting to find a blade of grass but by the the third day of falling snow they kept under cover in their little barns.  I wasn't able to get any pictures of the wonderful scene.  I'm hoping that under such close quarters...babies are in the making! ;)

But what else to do to keep busy but play with more fleece! This time around I wet felted a small hand bag and a small pouch.  So much fun!!  Still need to add a strap on the yellow one and a clasp  on the little pouch. Let me know what you think? And please post some pictures of projects any of you have made, would love to see them!


  1. Adorable.
    I'm working on a saddle blanket I will felt in the washing machine...but it will take a little while to get it finished. I will post pictures of it on my blog when I get it done.

  2. oooh a saddle blanket...Love it! Can't wait to see it! I think I will make some mittens tonight...after I put the babes to bed and clean up the kitchen and toss the clothes in the dryer...but I must felt LOL!!!

  3. What a wonderful way to bid away the snowy day. Lovely projects! I love to felt.
    What type of hay do you feed your sheep during these deep snows?

  4. Since this is our first year I was unsure. Everyone I asked seemed to have differing opinions. We opted for a second cut timothy mix plus another with an alfalfa mix. Seems like they are eating thru one and half bale every two days and there are five of them.
    What do you feed yours and how much?
    PS. Do you happen to have some icelandic roving for sale? I wanted to attempt to hook a rug.

  5. Hi Sandy - love the pouch! So that was made straight from roving??? Margaret Flowers might have some roving, if you're still looking. Thanks for sharing your projects, they are great!

  6. Thanks Elaine! yes, I just carded the fleece into rolags and then wet felted them. the yellow one was needle felted first then I sort of wet processed it.

  7. I love the hand bag and pouch! And the felted hat! Will you email me? I have a question for you.
