new feltmaking kits from fatcat felt

even if i do say so myself, i think these new feltmaking kits have turned out really well! m even commented that they looked very professional :) although you may not be able to tell that from the photos - i found it quite hard to photograph the kits in the polythene bags, especially as we were lucky enough to have some spring sunshine (coupled with gusty wind which is not a good combination for photography - one minute ... sunny, next ... cloudy, oh and then everything is now going to blow all over the place too!).

the idea for these came from being asked to give a beginner's workshop for the international women's day celebrations. i was hoping that folk would enjoy the workshop and want to do more feltmaking - and they did!

i really enjoyed putting the kits together, they contain: comprehensive instructions (possibly too comprehensive but then i didn't want folk to get stuck with any element of the process); a bamboo mat; bubble wrap; netting; soap flakes and 100g of merino roving.

if you would like to buy a kit to try feltmaking for yourself, or to give as a special gift, they are £9.50 plus postage and are available from fatcat's folksy shop, they're available in seven different colour combinations but if you would prefer a kit made up with your favourite colours, please let me know.
