Making Felt Bags & Cushion Covers

21 February, 2010 at 12:38 Leave a comment

Time: Thursday 25/2 11am
Venue: Stithian Hall, Stithians.
Cost: £2 per family (hall hire) plus materials (at cost).

The Thursday HE group will be making bags, decorations and cushions from recyled, felted, woollen jumpers, scarves and blankets.

Some materials will be available to buy or you can bring your own.

You will need to wash any woollen items on a very hot wash to make them felt. This makes the fibres join together to make a strong
non-fraying piece of fabric that is easy to work with. The woollen item needs to be at least 70% wool and not one that can be machine washed ( this will not felt due to a special finish).

There will also be some embellishments and threads available but if you have anything that you would like to bring like beads or buttons then please do. Also any extra pairs of scissors may be useful.

We will be scouring charity shops for the bargains!!
