My First Nuno Felt

I finally did it, my first nuno felt and i made a little vest for my Granddaughter Charlie, I did blog about it here

But !!!!!
So this is my first nuno one and although its far from perfect i'm happy to have had a go and looking forward to trying again

I used Merino and BFL along with lots of silk, silk threads & sari ribbons

 Thought i might have over done the bits and pieces at first, and i did add a bit to much fiber on top because i wanted it a bit more wrinkly than what it came out, but thats ok '

This is after throwing it about 100 times, it did shrink a lot
Cutting it up and adding beads, blanket stitching all the edges and all had to be done by hand as i dont have a machine anymore , and i know its just plain and simple but its the first one lol

Of course i did cut a pattern from one of her tops but i should have made the front sides a bit larger, she's still only little but she seems to be filling out nicely, love the double chin lol 

Its not going to fit her for long but i'm still happy with the way it turn out and learning by my mistakes is half the fun  !!
Happy Felting !!!


  1. It's really great, so is the little beauty!
    Happy felting to you too!

  2. What a lovely, happy little girl :) You made a lovely piece of nuno felt Karen and and great little top!

    1. Thankyou Deborah, She's always very happy and a very contented little thing, i hope my next top is better but i enjoyed every minute of it anyway xo

  3. Sweetie! See how she is happy with your first nuno felt. Pretty color. Indeed you don't have to do stibtches for the connection next time. You just use a foam or bubble wrap as resist. You cut the template and enclose the the whole with wool and chiffon or silk fabric, after all cut the neckline, arm holes and bottom. It's easier and no needle works.

  4. Awww thankyou so much Terri, you are gorgeous and i'll try that next time, its sounds a lot easier and i think it will look much better to xoxo

  5. Karen--Great's fantastic!! I can't wait to have a baby to make felt for! You are a lucky Gma!! XXO-

  6. Thanks Heather, loooooove being a nana :)

  7. I know this is a bit late, but this vest is lovely.

  8. Thankyou Colleen, its never to late but i think i am as its already to small for her lol she's growing like a weed :)
