felting, knitting


felting pillowcase

After carefully bundling the slippers in a pillowcase and then subjecting them to the hot water cycle in the washing machine, they started to shrink and felt.  It took two or three cycles and they are somewhat uneven – I even tried to hand felt the sections that didn’t seem to be felting as quickly as the rest.

All in all, I managed to felt them down to my size and the felted fabric is nice and dense without any stitch definition – just like my swatch.  It actually worked!
