Rolling, rolling, and more rolling

Trying out the jellyroll method to make some felted beads ( or whatever they end up being)!
I love how they turned out!


I sat, knelt, and changed positions a million times rolling this for 2 hours! Is it terrible that I may be sore from felting? Shoot, I'm out of shape!


Here's the felted log and then pieces are sliced off to be added to upcoming felt and sewing projects.

Any time I sit on the floor for a prolonged period of time I hurt! So you aren't the only one.

Those look awesome!

Your jellyroll pieces are awesome, so colorful! I can see them embellishing future projects perfectly. They remind me of polymer cane when sliced. Lovely!
Have to add I don't think I can even sit like that anymore. LOL!

Beautiful colours; it looks VERY hard work! They will make wonderful embellies or buttons. Love the photo! Valerie

Such delicious colours, Katie. Look good enough to eat. A lot of work, but so worth it. Such a beautiful product at the end. hugs, Donna

Those are so cool, they remind me of polymer clay, that's what we've been making logs and then slicing them, very cool, they're pretty! Love all the colors!

GORGEOUS colours, Katie! I haven't had a go at felting but it sounds painful! (I staggered around for a day after cleaning my son's bedroom on my hands and knees. So no, you aren't the only one (although you are a lot younger than me!).

How much fun this is!! I know the sitting on the floor for a long time isn't the best for the body -- but just look at the fun colors and lovely beads you've come up with. It was worth it!!
