I hope that all of you who are here in America have survived the Thanksgiving holiday. This morning on the news they talked about a woman who brought pepper spray with her in order to get the item that she wanted. Well, happy holidays. Incredible. One more reason to stay out of the stores and make lovely gifts at home.
You will need 4 colors of wool felt. I found a great resource for merino wool felt here. Felt On The Fly has some wonderful colors. Merino wool is so soft and unless you are allergic to wool, you shouldn't have any problems with it being itchy.
You will also need beading wire, a closure and 2 crimps to secure the wire. I used two beads at the ends of my necklace, but this is not necessary, your choice.
And you're finished. Really quite easy, it just takes a little time to do.I think it took maybe 2 hours, so not bad.
Have some fun with the idea. I think some beads between the folds would be really nice.
Good luck if you decide to give it a try.
