I’m making a felted flower…needed a good instant-gratification project…it’s one that calls for knitting, then rolling it into the flower shape and stitching it in place. My question is…do I felt it before or after I form it into the flower shape?? The pattern doesn’t say. :??
Also…when felting in the washer…can you felt more than one piece at a time in the same pillowcase bag thingie? Like, if they are different colors will there be errant fibers and the pieces will mess each other up? Or does it not work like that?
AHA! = alkalinity (soap), heat and aggitation are what’s needed for felting.
You can felt more than one at a time in a pillowcase (others have said - I’ve never done this). Yes, the fibers will get on everything in the pillowcase, so you might want to only put in like-colored objects.
