Wet felted soap



After reading about needle felting and wet felting and also recieving gifts from the process I decided to give it a go. The process is pretty easy , you get some wool roving , wrap the roving around the soap , slightly wet and pat intill the roving has clung to the soap , continue to squeeze cling and rub the soap intill the roving becomes very secure. After that rinse in cold water and dab dry with a tea towel , then let dry naturally.

Thrift store revamp swap

So heres the deal , somebody buys a bag from a charity shop they send it to somebody else to revamp up. After waiting a seriously long time to recieve my bag , here is what I did to it.

Ive decided to hold back on swaps for a while as it seems to be coming alot of hassle for me , people not meeting deadlines and such , and I dont mean a few days I mean a few weeks. Rant over , here are the results.

Before bag


Yucky plaid burberry rip off thing , makes em want to puke just looking at it to be honest.










After Bag

First things first , whip out the paint and cover that awful fabric with bright yellow , yay ! Then I used inter bonding to make some retro shapes and a cute little owl.
The bag looks a little messy here , but Ive since tidied up the old paint around the edges.
