handmade presents

So, tomorrow is my Mum’s bithday and I decided to make her present. She’s a bit crazy about scarves, so I decided to have a go at making my first ever nuno felted scarf. I learned how to do this at the felting workshop I went along to run by Heartfelt by Liz but that was a few months ago now.
I did my research and bought some merino wool online. Unfortunetely, when it arrived instead of being shades of purple and blue it turned out to be a swampy green colour. I didn’t have time to return it so I did my best with what I had.


It took me around four hours to get the scarf finished, I forgot what a lengthy process it was! I’m still not too happy about the seaweed-like colour but I’m pretty chuffed that I managed to finish the scarf without it falling to pieces. Once I get some better colours I’ll have a go at making another.


I also knit these little hearts from a pattern by Mochimochi to decorate the gift bag:
