I've worn silver bracelets all of my life. So I've been exploring decorating the wrist with fiber. I love the magic of felting and these bracelets combine these affections. I've named them Regina for my maternal grandmother.
The pattern has two approaches to the body. These also work as unfelted, oversized bangles.
There are an infinite number of ways to embellish them. The pattern explains two fiber-based approaches but there are many more you could explore: embroidery, applique', beading, and buttons, to name a few.
Bulky, feltable Wool (approx. 20 yards)
Feltable worsted weight wool scraps
Any weight feltable wool yarn scraps (no superwash)
For felting :2 containers/bowls/pots
Hot and cold water source Liquid soap
Optional: felting needle(s)
I've tested them using two strands of worsted weight held together and this stranding offered opportunities for color play and mixing (loved two pinks and a green).

Long, long ago, far, far away, when the subway cost a quarter and the corner drugstore was also an ice cream parlor where a little girl sipped vanilla egg creams, her mother, who made her wonderful clothes, showed her how to crochet. Her father taught her how to solder and make a tuner.View all patterns by designer (45) »
