  • Tutorial – 3D Pod | Angela Barrow
    the pod later Now begin rolling the tops in exactly the same way you would a length of clay working your hands in and out across the full length You ll know it s ready if when you squeeze it it bounces back to shape 3 Laying out the fibres I began by laying curly Teeswater locks and scraps of fabric onto the template These will decorate the inside of the pod Begin by laying a fringe half on half off the resist and then fill in the centre Your next layer of fibre needs to be at right angles to the first layer Cover with a net wet the fibres with soapy water and press through until the fibres are completely flat Turn the resist over and lay more decoration onto the resist for the inside again and then fold in the fringe before repeating as above 4 Adding a pattern The resist should be completely covered by fibres and now it s time to add any final decorations or patterning I ve added more curls and pieces of weaving in shiny threads This is the outside of your pod Then it s back on with the net wet it out and rub lightly before attaching the rope Attach by fanning out the dry fibres and laying them on both sides of the resist then continue rubbing until the pattern is set making sure you work the edges of the resist too 5 Ready to roll Do the pinch test below on each side of the resist If the fibres stay together then you re ready to roll If the fibres start to separate you need to rub for longer I use a piece of pipe insulation for rolling but you can use a broom handle Wrap the whole thing up in the bubble wrap and roll 100 times Unroll the package turn 90 degrees and roll for another 100 Unwrap turn it over and repeat 6 Finishing When the resist begins to buckle it s time to remove the felt Cut the resist open and rub the cut edges with soapy fingers to harden before removing the resist Remove the resist then work around the edges with soapy hands to make sure ridges don t form down the sides of your pod I put it over my hand to do this To full harden the felt you can continue to roll or throw it onto the table The impact of the throwing shocks the felt into hardening and gives a more textured finish I made the curl to hang inside the pod by twisting fibres and yarns around wire I then needle felted this into the dry pod Finished If you d like to see more pictures of the finished pod take a look at my blog 6 Responses to Tutorial 3D Pod Liz Lovegrove says July 13 2011 at 3 18 pm Hi Angela Iam new to felting I found all your tutorials easy to follow and

  • Tutorial – Felt cord making | Angela Barrow
    Always work on shorter cords before longer ones If the cord is wider than your mat work in sections but make sure the ends don t dangle off the table or all the water will be conducted into the ends you re trying to keep dry 3 Adding a pattern After wetting the fibres give a very gentle roll to start the circular shape Next lay out some fibres at 90 to your cord then roll it onto the fibres which will be come wrapped around it You can add as many colours as you like and you can also use several colours in the original length of fibre Play and have fun 4 Rolling Once the fibres are wt I roll on a bamboo blind for extra friction Don t allow the roll to dry out though or felting will slow down and the cord will become fluffy It s just like working plasticine or play dough and you need to keep your hands working along the whole length To test if you ve felted enough try the pinch test If the cord flattens when you do this then it s too soft It will eventually become so firm it can stand upright 5 Top tip When we make cords often the softest spot is where wet fibres meet dry This area needs to be as firm as the rest To get right in there hold the dry fibres up with one hand and then work the cord vigorously with the other By holding the dry fibres up you prevent the water from being pushed into them 4 Responses to Tutorial Felt cord making Sheila Hen says February 26 2012 at 7 23 pm Thanks for that Angela I will give it a go I ve had no trouble

  • Hints and tips | Angela Barrow
    back of the pre felt until they re all fluffy Your pre felt will then adhere to further felt without the need for stitching Using up old tops If you ve had your wool tops a long time or they ve been mistreated you may find that they ve started to felt slightly and are difficult to pull when laying out I split the top down it s length into as many as 4 segments This breaks it up and allows some air back into the fibres with the result that you can now pull the fibres out Yes it s a narrow top but it is usable If you can t split it down the length then you really have left it for too long or badly mistreated it Other uses make it into a felt rope cut it up into small sections for jewellery bead making or using it for stuffing low relief work 4 Responses to Hints and tips Mariette says November 9 2014 at 5 20 am Thanks for sharing your tutorials What do you use as a resist for your seamless felt handbags Thanks angela says November 12 2014 at 7 53 am Hi Mariette you can use a number of things I often use the blue plastic that builders put down under concrete to prevent rising damp You can also use the thin polystyrene type sheeting that s used under laminate floors and compost bags are good too As long as it ll survive the water and is flexible enough you can use anything You can use bubble wrap but it s harder to find the edge of the template as it s so soft Good luck with it Angela lInda Hodder says November 16 2014 at 10 43 pm I have just read

  • Tutorial – Trollen weaving | Angela Barrow
    than a foot 30cm long until you get the hand of it That way I hope you won t get too tangled up Push one end of the threads through the central hole and tie in a knot Flip back to the top and arrange the threads into the slots There should be one empty slot 3 Weaving Hold the trollen in your left hand with the empty slot towards you With your right hand count three threads up on the right anti clockwise remove it from the slot and put it into the empty slot Now hold the trollen in your right hand The empty slot will be at about 1 o clock With your left hand count three threads to the left of the slot anti clockwise and move that thread into the empty slot Just keep repeating these actions until the thread is used up has just small ends hanging over the edge Remove the threads from the trollen pull the braid free of the trollen and tie a knot in the end Finished N B As you work you will need to make sure the threads hanging down don t get tangled Every second time that I move a thread I then run my hand down the full length of the spare thread This separates it from it s neighbours and prevents tangling Uses I m sure you can think of many but just like French Knitting you can twist the braids into a circle sewing them as you go and use as coasters etc We ve successfully used them for hair accessories belts and handbag handles to name a few Big fat ones makes great snakes for younger children Enjoy 2 Responses to Tutorial Trollen weaving Rhiannon says February 24 2012 at 7 05 pm

  • Tutorial – Nuno felt scarf | Angela Barrow
    along the length of the scarf and then cover with either a net or a piece of decorators plastic sheeting as I ve done Use your hand to press all the water down through the fibres until it goes flat and give a light rub with a bag Take off the net or plastic and roll the whole thing up in the bubble wrap Roll 300 times then unroll and roll another 300 times from the other end Check if it s ready see below or keep rolling Different fabrics and different fibres require different amounts of rolling 4 Finishing You ll know it s time to stop rolling when the fibres are making their way through the fabric You can check this by feeling for them or sometimes you can see they ve come through You can fold the fabric over the back of your hand then lift it up to the light you may now be able to see them Turn the bubblewrap bubble side up and rub the scarf against the bubble wrap along the whole length Now you can put the scarf into soapy water as hot as your hands can stand and then throw the scarf 12 times After each set of throwing check that the scarf isn t felting to itself The crinkles will very quickly appear as the fibres are felted When you stop is partly a matter of choice but you shouldn t be able to pull the fibres off the fabric easily and expect a shrinkage rate of approx 50 Wash the soap out and rinse in vinegar water before leaving to dry You re done 7 Responses to Tutorial Nuno felt scarf marica says June 26 2011 at 12 40 pm Great tutorial Thanks so much for sharing Angela says

  • Tutorial – Seamless Felt Handbag | Angela Barrow
    5 Finishing When the resist begins to buckle it s time to remove the felt Cut the resist open and rub the cut edges with soapy fingers to harden before removing the resist Remove the resist then work around the edges with soapy hands to make sure ridges don t form down the sides of your bag I put it over my hand to do this To full harden the felt you can continue to roll or throw it onto the table The impact of the throwing shocks the felt into hardening and gives a more textured finish When rolling you need to change direction often to keep your felt shrinking in proportion and also to lay the bag with the sides uppermost as shown above to prevent ridges forming on the sides You can also rub again with your hands To form the bottom fold the felt to form an eye shape and rub well The felt will remember this shaping if you repeat the process periodically whilst felting Remember to keep checking the bag until you ve shrunk it down to the desired size You can roll in a mat to harden but I often use a towel as it also increases friction and aids felting When you ve achieved the correct size cut a slit in the centre top about 1 5 inches down to form a handle If you don t like the obvious cut edges just rub them with soapy hands until they soften off Whilst the felt is wet it can be shaped so stretch it and pull it back into shape if you need to before leaving to dry 14 Responses to Tutorial Seamless Felt Handbag Sandy says January 5 2011 at 12 55 pm wow thanks to your tutorial I have made my first real handbag Your bag looks so awesome I had a little trouble with the merino silk blend I added for color they took forever to felt Thanks so much for your easy to follow instructions Sandy Bachar Farms Angela says January 5 2011 at 1 10 pm Thank you so much for the feedback Sandy I m so pleased it was easy to follow Fran says March 7 2013 at 1 22 am I have been less successful than Sandy all my own fault My thanks for the tutorial I enjoyed the process though the result still hangs in the balance However the day has finally prompted me to bite the bullet and start my own blog in which I have included a link to your tutorial If you have time to look and tell me if I spotted all the things I did wrong I would be doubly grateful lynn mccalmon says October 20 2013 at 4 16 am What is resist or what is it made from Where can it be purchased angela says October 20 2013 at 5 50 am Hi Lynn you can use any kind of plastic for the resist including bubble wrap
