Felt Soap, for Rebecca
Got a late-night request from Rebecca last night, to whit: how does one make these felted soap bars she saw on Queer Knits? Courtesy of Mielke's Fiber Arts, the directions are found here. I also found this FAQ about the process from the Feltmakers List. Or, you can buy the originals from Zederkamm Farm in Washington, near where I grew up. They make a soap-on-a-rope version, too! There are also a few crafters selling their versions on Etsy, the crafters eBay: PoofNoggin, AmeliaMakesArt, and DoBeClean all had different takes on the felted soap concept. (MikeE, the latter is selling "Wake 'n Bake Hemp Soap", which according to it's creator will "give you an incredible urge to bake muffins, or something." Hee.) Go wash yourselves, people!
