Tutorial to make felted soaps »
InstructionsThis is a great first felting project, and ideal to make with kids too !
My tutorial includes TONS of step-by-step pics so that it's easy to see the whole process.
I've made tons of those with both adults and kids, it's always a joy and everybody loves the end product :-)
Type of item: Functional
Style: Funky, Whimsical, Casual
regular soaps, + carded wool and combed top (some of it hand-dyed by me)
What was your inspiration?
One of my students made a felted soap with a bright area of color on one side.. I loved it so much I had to try that design too ! :-)
What are you most proud of?
the way the soaps never turn out completely how you planned them to be.. yet they're always beautiful :-)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
have fun ! this will be an enjoyable moment (about 1 hour altogether for a first felted soap) and it's a great first experience of the felting process
