Throughout the month of September, we’re celebrating all things felt. We’re also celebrating the release of From Felt to Fabric: New Techniques in Nuno Felting, by Catherine O’Leary. Based in Melbourne, Australia, Catherine is a renowned felt and fiber artist who’s known for her passion, innovative techniques, and skill with felt  – and felt garments in particular. (See more of her creations on her website and in 500 Felt Objects.) Of the craft, Catherine says this:

“Feltmaking is a creative evolution. It feeds my soul and creates a wonderful balance in my life.”

We’ll be featuring tips and techniques from Catherine’s book throughout the month, starting with a neat technique for bringing recycled and upcycled fabrics into your feltmaking. Take a peek at this repurposed fabric PDF for more information about one of the techniques Catherine used in the inspiring pieces below!
