Finished Project: Felted Bead Bracelet

Maybe it’s crazy of me to decide to make a birthday gift the day before a party, but Ella and I had fun.

Ella’s going to a birthday party tomorrow and needed a gift for a friend. Ever since my trip to Morehouse Farm yarn store, I can’t stop thinking about little felted balls. I mentioned the idea of trying to make a felted bead bracelet for her friend. She was excited about it so we picked up some colorful wool at A Child’s Garden after school. An hour later Ella, Liam and I were circled around a tub of hot soapy water felting away. After felting, I put the beads in the dryer and then strung them on some stretchy beading cord. That’s it. It was a simple and fun project to do with kids and I’m sure we’ll be making more of these. At Morehouse Farm I also saw some felt bead purse handles which were so cute. Hmm, maybe I could put those on my felted knitting bag I want to make.

  2. Your bracelet is kewl. It reminds me of Fruity Pebbles! I like the Silk Garden socks, too. I’m about to bookmark your site so I can check back. I’ve been looking at all the Sockapalooza socks and really want to join in on one of the next ones. I just missed the deadline for this one.

  4. What a fun idea for a b-day present! I’ve never tried that type of felting before. I have directions somewhere of felting kitty balls (the kind with the bell inside) that I thought would be fun top do with the kiddos, but I’m sure my girls would much rather make bracelets.

    Your sock pal socks look great too! I’m sure your pal will be thrilled to receive them!

  8. Would you share the directions for this unique bracelet? My daughter is going on a mission trip and would like to make these to give to the children.
