Freebie Friday: Cobwebby Scarf


Did I scare you? No? Well, maybe the Internet isn’t the most effective place to give a Halloween startle. But you know what is truly scary? The fact that we’re giving away this FREE PROJECT and you haven’t started it yet!

This project is one of many found in Carnival of Feltmaking: Easy Techniques and 26 Colorful Projects for You and Your Home by Gillian Harris, inspiring you to capture the carnival atmosphere of bright colors and cheerful patterns with stylish felted projects. Gillian draws on inspiration from the carnival atmosphere, featuring a diverse range of 26 brilliant accessories and home items, like:

  • a plush rose-trimmed evening bag
  • a luminous eight-panel lampshade in a medley of patterns, accented with felted flowers and ribbons
  • a heavenly nuno-felted heart-shaped cushion
  • a dazzling tropical-inspired knitting needle case
  • variegated vintage-style plant baskets decorated with either a floral or oceanic pattern
  • a sweet and adorable strawberry deerstalker hat for baby

Plus, Carnival of Feltmaking contains an overview of equipment and materials, and step-by-step breakdowns with close-up photographs of all the major techniques used in the book, including wet felting, 3D felting, needle felting, fine cobweb felting, and more.

The exuberant projects in this book showcase Gillian’s vibrant style and creativity, making this is an excellent resource for both newcomers and more-experienced fiber crafters looking for exciting inspiration.

And this isn’t the first time we’ve featured cool felting projects! Discover how to make Fabric Pumpkins , a Needle-Felted Pig, and a stylish Spectacle Glasses Case in case you missed these posts the first time around.

And be sure to check back here on Sunday, when we’ll be giving away 20 copies of Carnival of Feltmaking. Or if you just can’t wait, buy a copy now!
