As part of the “Screw Work Let’s Play” 30 Day Challenge I’m exploring my creative blocks and thoughts as to how I can overcome my own obstacles to finish projects. As part of this process I’ll be making felt pieces and organising a one day workshop to teach felting to a small group of friends.

How many other people have boxes of unfinished projects? For me they are not limited to craft ones; I live in a project-house, surrounded by a project-garden (including a large project-outhouse), oh, and there’s a project folding camper still calling for just a little tlc for the summer.

It will be interesting to see whether the felting becomes a vehicle, an inspiration or just a plain fun distraction. Watch this space.

  1. Hi Rachael,

    I am desperately searching for about 50 4cm felt balls to make my own garland with. The only ones I can find are from america and are expensive with the delivery charge.

    I have watched your tutorial on youtube and was wondering if it was possible to cover ping pong balls or polystyrene with the fibre to make felt balls this size. If so, what is the fibre i need to buy and where is the best place to get it?
    how much would I need to buy and what cost do you think it would be to make 40 – 50?

    I would also be interested to know if you make them this size and how much you would charge for either 50 loose multicoloured balls ( I like the colours you have on the tutorial) or a ready made garland of 5m long (or 2 2.5m long) with the balls spaced out, 1 to every 10cm – leaving about 5-6cm gaps in between.

    The length i need must come to 5m, I am dressing my curtains with it 🙂

    Any help would be appreciated so much!

    Thanks kindly,


    • Hi Cara,

      That sounds like an interesting project! I don’t mass produce, but you could try what you suggest, then put each one into the leg of a pair of tights and knot it off between each ball, then stick it in the washing machine.

      I’d try some samples first before committing yourself.

      I’d be really interested to hear how you get on.
