Pattern 1540 - Create Distinctive Details: Designer's Notes on Felting

I've been a designer for many years, but have never experienced the art of needle felting. For this pattern I designed a relatively simple jacket, with each view having its own twist. One of these is a large collar, perfect for embellishment.

Time to check out the Simplicity® 12-Needle Deluxe Felting Machine!

For the jacket I purchased beautiful pearl grey lightweight boiled wool and started a “stash” of sheer and satin ribbon, bits of wool and some velvet remnants I was saving for something special. I also visited a couple of local yarn shops – instant inspiration, with all that color and texture.

Pretty soon I came up with a palette of blues and greens, influenced by the peacock feather motifs I had been seeing lately.

The jacket was sewn together, minus the collar. I worked on the collar separately, so it was easier to maneuver under the machine (also safer, since I was a felting newbie). I bought a bit of extra yardage of everything, knowing I wanted to play around first. I was so curious to see what would develop when the machine's needles hit the different fibers.

Magic! It's like painting – with fibers – and with each combination I experimented with, I uncovered another exciting surprise. Or not! But that's half the fun. I found that if I felted lightly, I could pull off the fibers and start again.

Once I got the hang of it I felted the jacket's real collar, and you can see the results look amazing. And it was so easy! In fact, it's rather addicting. I started thinking – what else can I needle felt? Those scarves at home? The hem of the skirt I never wear?

The possibilities are endless – fun, easy and creatively satisfying.
