I have been an artist all my life. After learning of its existence in 2007, I became fascinated with felting. Like all my hobbies, I dove in head first and wanted to know everything there was to know about it. I spent so much time in my local wool store that I became friends with everyone who worked there. Less than a year later, I was teaching classes and sharing my passion with beginners. I am still teaching to this day. I pride myself on my teaching style, which is casual and entertaining, but very detailed. Over my years of teaching, I have learned the most common questions and mistakes that students make on different projects, and how to guide them to success. In 2012 I wrote my first online tutorial in preparation for publishing a book. My plan is to write a collection of tutorials, and then choose the most popular to be projects in my book (not published yet). Each tutorial takes a couple of months to photograph, write and edit in my spare time. I am really looking forward to more.View all patterns by designer (4) »
This tutorial includes instructions for felting a solid colored bangle bracelet and a multicolored striped bangle bracelet. These bracelets are not knitted or crocheted, but made using the wet felting technique directly from unspun, carded wool (roving).
This tutorial is suitable for beginners. It has been written for someone who has never felted before. It is also suitable for those who have attempted this project on their own and have encountered problems. This tutorial includes a Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting section to help you with the most common problems I've encountered during my years of teaching this project (ex. cracks, thin spots).
I have been teaching felting for several years and I have decided to bring my no-nonsense, easy to understand teaching techniques into written material.
This tutorial took countless hours to write, photograph, and edit. It contains copyrighted material and may not be duplicated without consent of the author. However, you may sell your felted items.
