3D Feltmaking – Decorative bowls, Tea Cosies & Hottie Covers

Women of the Cloth 2012 105

Hottie covers

 

 

 

 

 

 

Using a resist technique with a plastic template to felt around, we can make 3D items with no seams.  In this workshop make either a decorative bowl to keep jewellery, keys or bits & bobs safe,  a fabulous felt tea cosy for your favourite teapot, or as a gift for a friend – these make great presents for the tea lovers in your life – or a cosy cover for  your hot water bottle.  Felt is the perfect material for keeping your hottie warm longer than any other cover, and it feels soft and cuddly next to your body.

Use absolutely any colourscheme  you can imagine, or one to match the decor in your kitchen or bedroom.  Here are some cosies that were made by a mum and her two twenty-something daughters at a mothers & daughters felting day in my studio recently:-
