Felted Christmas Decos
These decoration were made for my friends' children, using a felted swatch of Cascade 220 held double and knitted on 10mm needles. Once the swatch was felted I just cut out the desired shapes, embroidered on names and other patterns, and added ribbon for hanging. You could use any bits and pieces from your sewing kit to embellish these. I found some sequins and a small brass bell to make mine more interesting.
Please note I used the reverse stockinette side as well as the stockinette side of the swatch to give the decorations a different look.

Once you have felted the swatch all the fibers are locked in together so they ain't going nowhere! I felted this swatch by hand in hot water (wear rubber gloves!) with a bit of wool wash and lots of rubbing until the fabric shrinks and felts together.Make sure you use natural fibers and NOT super-wash or it wont felt.

These look great, I never realized felting would be so easy. So after you've felted the wool, it's okay to cut it and it wont unravel?
