Today I set up my kitchen to test the felted soap I wanted to do.
First, I found all the tools I would need, a mat, a tape measure, scissors, the soap - a travel size, and the roving.
I prepped the rovings and wrapped the soap like the tutorial explained then I used a washboard to accelerate the felting process.
I made two to start which I will be testing in my own shower this next week to see how I like them. They turned out really fun looking, I made one in purple and gold, pictured, and one in red and blue.
I am going to try needlefelting a design on them as they dry. More on that process later. I have to get the tools first. These were fun to do and will make great gift items.
I hope everyone is finding fun new things to try~!
