Dotty and textiles are my perfect combination.
I slept like a baby the evening of the felt workshop. Although the felting process is a very physical one, I had forgotten how tiring it is to think on your feet and make design decisions fast as part of the creative process. The felt scarf took a day to make and I absolutely love the result. Especially wearing it with my lovely vintage ‘linen’ brooch.

The original size of the scarf was so long, it hung over both ends of the six foot table I was working on…. after felting the scarf was a third smaller in both directions.
At the end of the day I took my scarf home to complete the final tweaking (after a good nights sleep).
