Learn How To Felt A Tablet/Laptop Sleeve

Sep 29, 2016


This is what I’ve been up to in the last weeks. I was working on a new workshop where I include something I absolutely love – sheep locks.

You can get them in their natural colors or dyed in all sorts of different tonalities. They also vary a lot depending on the sheep race and other factors. So, it’s really fun to play with them.

I wanted to include them in a project for a long time. And now the Fall is back to the Northern hemisphere, I felt it was the right moment to suggest a piece using this wonderful product.

The two pieces I show you in this workshop can be used either as a tablet sleeve or a winter clutch. Of course you can also take the idea and make it bigger and thicker for a laptop bag. Another possibility is to give it another shape, add any type of handles, and make a messenger bag, for example.

The workshop Bah Bah Tablet Sleeve is now available and you can download it from my etsy shop.

Check out the introduction video to get a taste of what you...

The days are growing shorter and colder. You stay more at home, looking for the coziness of the sofa, a hot tea and a nice book. Yes, Fall is about to start In a week, to be more precise.

This is a time of the year I really love. I like the slower pace, and going for long walks to enjoy the colors of the trees and the wind in my face

Something else I love is to stay home listening to music and experimenting with wool.

What’s A Pre-Felt? The Q&A Series

Aug 18, 2016

Am I happy to be back!!!

What started out as a couple of technology problems, ended up as a great example of Murphy’s Law. After having taken my tablet – where I store eBooks, notes, my calendar, and all sorts of information – to repair, my Internet stopped working, I had huge difficulties in getting it fixed because it’s August (and everything stops in August), and – last but not least – my laptop started giving me problems.

So, I convinced myself it was time to take it easy, and just let things take care of themselves. And, in the process, I had to skip a week of posting here.

But I’m back to stay! And I’m back with something new. I wanted to try a new format to answer some of the most frequent questions about felt, that don’t require showing a process on video.

So, today I’m going to dive into the following questions:

  • What’s a pre-felt?
  • How do you make it?
  • Why does it matter?

A felted piece that isn’t...
