My Creative Space

My creative space this week is un-felting.

Hmm. A new crafty term?
No, I don't think so.

Did you throw this wool/cotton/viscose blend in the front loader with the rest of the wash?
Yes.
Are you mad that your $70 sweater has felted?
Yes.
Will you slow down and try not to let this happen again?
Probably not, this isn't the first time.

Head over to Kirsty's to see more spaces.

EDIT: Successfully unfelted by pulling it apart very hard. Very very hard! Yay!

Oops. Exactly the sort of thing I'd do too.

Very oops! Oh well- can you maybe transform it to something else?
Have a lovely day anyway!

But I love them felted like that!! So soft and cuddly :) How are you going to un-felt it?? That's intriguing. K

oh dear! Good thing the shrunken cardi look is in. Oh wait, its the oversized "boyfriend"cardi at the moment! Just wait a few years and the old look will be back! Check out this post for what else you can make.

Hi Bec. It seems like ages since I dropped by and I can't believe how busy you are. How do you fit it all in? I have made a note of a few of the markets and hopefully will drop in and say hi in person again one day soon! Happy creating.

Oh no. I've been lucky so far, but I know it will happen one day, probably with a jumper I've crocheted!

Looks like you need to do some serious refashioning.... Don't give up on sweater just yet!

Cindy said...

ooops, though I do like what it becomes after a hard wash :-)
