Remember the Valentine ideas I mentioned? Well here is one of them! I made a felted coffee sleeve. I found the blue fabric on sale at Hancock. It is a wool / rayon blend of unspecified percentages! I washed it in hot sudsy water and one side of it then resembled boiled wool. I cut 2 of my pattern and felted the top layer with wool roving and a felting needle. It was not hard to felt, but the hard part is making the roving do what you want it to do. For the finishing, I used a blanket stitch to join the two blue pieces together. I think it turned out pretty well for a first attempt. I hope to make a few more for teacher gifts as well. Thanks to Anne Peters for the great photo!
