Not sure what I think of this yet, but it's an interesting concept:

It looks more like it just fuzzed up the unwrapped sections, either that or she didn't felt if for very long.
Interesting concept,but don't think it's one I'd try.

Hi There!

I think in some situations, it could turn out well (bag handles, maybe?) but honestly I'm not loving the color combo with the idea.... looks a bit like a moldy orange:teehee: Could be cute though...

Love,
Lexie:muah:

I think I will resist trying it! LOL !!! Not very appealing and the moldy comment is right on the mark!

I have to agree that the scarf looks pretty ratty!

However, I was in a hurry with some last minute Christmas gifts and ended up using two different brands of yarn for a felted purse....one felted way faster than the other. In the end, I sort of liked the result.

I looked through a 'shibori' knitting book at the LYS once and it was pretty neat. They were basically using the felted vs. unfelted sections to sculpt with the yarn/fabric.

i think the idea is neat, but i think the way she did it made it look odd..... the colors didn't look atractive that way. the scarf is cute, and I like the way Lisa r.'s bag turned out.

It kinds reminds me of the deconstruction garment phase that occurred in the 80's.. I could see how it would be really cute for certain items. It's really trendy right now to revisit the 80's. Mall hair anyone?
