Author Jeannette KnakeFrom the Author

Crazy Felt is a technique that allows you to give free rein to your creativity. It is based on the same methods as Crazy Patchwork and Crazy Wool, With Crazy Felt, wool and special-effect yarns are arranged as you wish on a base material (water-soluble stabilizer) and temporarily attached with a spray adhesive before being stitched in place using a sewing machine. The use of merino or mohair wool together with microfiber and special-effect yarns will result in a unique look. The item is then machine washed on a wool cycle at 30 degree C and spun at 1000 rpm to turn it into felt. You should expect it to shrink by five percent. The great advantage here is that this five percent shrinkage results in a full felting effect - it produces an entirely different look but with very little change in size so that all patterns can be used in their original dimensions.

Crazy Felt forms the basis for fashion designs which will make you feel great - from tops to handbag for both beginners and more advanced users, offering boundless potential for self-expression.

I wish you every enjoyment designing delightful new garments and trendy accessories.
