Felting Your Tote

You will notice that your tote looks a bit too large right now for a 750 ml bottle but that is because we needed to account for the shrinkage involved in felting. (You can read more about the math to calculate this if you’re interested in my Planning Your Felted Project post here.) My preferred method of felting is to just through the piece in the washing machine with a load of jeans or towels (take the same care to consider color bleed as you would with a new garment; that is, don’t felt a dark color with white towels). Wash in hot water and check your piece every 5 or 10 minutes until it is the size you would like, use a bottle of wine for sizing.

Once your tote is felted to size, rinse it in cold water and roll it between two towels to get out the excess moisture. Then put in your bottle of wine and let it fully dry. All that’s left is to make a reservation at your favorite “bring your own” restaurant!

    Hello, try as I might, I only get 38 stitches at the end of round 4. Am I missing something? I even mapped it on paper, and still it comes up to 38.
