Loot, Glorious loot - Day 2 -

I am really getting into the whole felting thing lately, now that the weather is getting much cooler here in Queensland (yay!).

I've been scouring the op shops, ala Betz White, and have managed to find a few beauties to felt. The striped one is a 96% lambswool 4% nylon blend, and felted up great! The other I'm not too sure of it's content, but it didn't felt up that great, but probably would still make some great softies.

I have had this pig softie on my etsy favourites for about a week, it is sooo cute!

Found here.

And these fingerless arm warmers are just gorgeous!

Found here.

Go check out some more loot over here.

I've been desperately looking at the oppies here for pure wool jumpers for felting but they're all waaaaay overpriced. Can;t wait to see what you make with the stripey one.

I'm in love with those arm warmers. Just gorgeous.

I've been planning to do some felting (ala Betz White) for ages but it hasn't happened yet. Maybe this winter. Finding really colourful patterned pure wool jumpers is pretty tricky these days.
