Felting Red Jacket Project

Another project worked on yesterday was the felting of a red wool jacket. I purchased this jacket at the Discovery Shop, a thrift store run by the American Cancer Association. I specifically went looking for a boiled wool or melton type jacket. This was priced at $15.00 but it was on sale for 1/2 off so spent $7.50.

Using an idea from the new Indygo Junction Felting Book I started experimenting with this jacket. The trim around the collar and all over one side of the jacket, onto the back and ending at the pocket on the other side is a yarn with metallic fibers. I purchased this from a local knit shop. I used wool roving in various colors on the collar as well as pieces of yarn cut in snippets and needle punched. The jacket in the book is called Confetti. I have more to do with this but thought I would share this work in progress.



Even DH thought it was interesting and something to work on to wear at Christmas!!! He sees embellishing as something for special occasions!!!!!

  2. I say embellished clothing should be something you wear everyday! Life's too short to wait for a holiday. This jacket will be fabulous when you are done, I look forward to watching the process.
