I once bought a gorgeous wet felted wool hat from Charlene of Noggins, a local artisan from the Guelph area. Her needle felted embellishments are what makes her designs stand out. (Her friend and the other half of Noggins, Judy, sews marvelous fabric newsboy style hats and I've bought one of hers too! See her patterns on Etsy.)

Charlie first crochets enormous wool hats which she then felts and embellishes. I marvel at her skill as it requires good control of all the variables like wool type and felting temperatures not to mention shaping!

Perhaps I could manage a simpler project?  Check out Sonya Kanelstrand's blog tutorial for a felted bracelet. This talented photographer behind Kanelstrand shows how one can knit a giant wool bangle.

After that, she takes you through the felting method - she uses her front loading washing machine. Then it is onwards to shaping and drying. The fun part is to needle felt designs. Her examples at the end of her blog post are lovely!

These creations are soft and light to wear! Plus they can be made to match your outfits.
