I made this piece of felt and then sewed a journal cover from it. There are tons of things you can make with your own piece of handmade original felt. Wall hanging, journal cover, pillow top, box...

This is a piece of felt that I cut up, embroidered and reassembled.

Here's a detail view of my Zen Eucalyptus, curently hanging in Quilt Visions 2010: No Boundaries at the Oceanside Museum of Art. Created from hand made felt, cut up, embroidered, reassembled.

Making Felt
The process involves rolling and agitating the fibers for about 45-60 minutes
And I can teach you how to do this! (you knew there was point to this post, didn't you?) I'm teaching wet felting in San Diego Feb 5 & 6 (email Beth), in Newbury Park (Ventura-ish) May 7 & 8 (email Eileen) and in Idyllwild July 1 & 2. Hope to see you at one of these workshops.


  1. What a pretty piece you used to cover your journal, love the colors. That looks like a pretty good workout, btw!

  2. Beautiful! Everyone will get a beautiful piece of felt and a triceps workout!

  3. Jane, somehow through the Sketchbook Challenge site I came upon you... What an absolute treat and feast for the eyes. I will be going through your site bit by bit. I'm a watercolor artist and also have a passion for paper arts , fiber arts, etc... We just need a whole other lifetime .!!! I see your making muscles in the making of your felt... .. thanks for sharing ...

  4. Your felt work is beautiful. I love making felt. Unfortunately, I have problems with my lower back and end up in lots of pain after just 10 or 15 minutes of making felt. Any suggestions? Wish I could come to your workshop, but it's a little far from Australia for me.

  5. Fabulous wonderful inspiring work!! I am off to felt with the fifth graders again today. they are INPSIRED rollers and even better felt throwers!!!!

  6. Your journal cover is FAB! And you are so CUTE!
