* Week 2
MODULE #3 - BABY JACKET WITH CURLS
I absolutely love this module! We'll be going through 3 different techniques to felt the baby jacket. In this first part, we'll be using curls to create a faux fur texture and make your baby's jacket beautiful and warm.
MODULE #3 - VARIATION: DECORATED WITH YARN
In this second part, you'll see how you can turn a simple white felt into a cute and trendy baby jacket, just by adding some yarn to it.
MODULE #3 - DOUBLE-SIDED NUNO FELTED WITH LACES
I have to say, I saved the best for last :) This is the most challenging piece in this class. In this part of module 3, you'll have the chance to create a reversible jacket for your baby: on one side marvellously soft extra-fine merino and on the other a luxurious silk layer. An unbeatable gift for a newborn!
