Alright, today's the day! I'm about to get out all the stuff I need for making this felted rug.
I'd like the finished size to be approximately 30" by 21" - I'm allowing for 16-20% shrinkage, so I'm going to lay out the dry fiber in a rectangle 36" by 25".
The fiber will be laid out in alternating directional layers - One layer horizontal, the next vertical, repeat ad nauseum. I'm planning for somewhere between 12 and 15 layers. I want a thick, squishy rug when I'm done, so the more the merrier. I'm not sure how many I'll finish up with at this point.
The very last layer I may add some contrasting colors so the surface is decorative. I have to look through my stash first to see what I've got that isn't superwash, though.
Okay, here we go!
