Ok, I have to admit I am loving the feel of cutting felt. I am using a rotary cutter and having a ball! (I know that this is not the norm, but that's never stopped me before.)
I am however going to stop and say I am sorry about using myself for a model..there is simply no one else around here right now except my beloved husband and he will not put this felt on! My eyes show my fatigue and I am sorry to share those tired eyes with you.
I made vertical cuts first and then let them become the fringe on the wrap. Then I made one horizontal cut so that I could use those "fringe parts" for a tie on the wrap. I found that the horizontal cut was too much, half a cut would have sufficed for the ties. Letting it drape with my arms through the openings serves it better than without.
Off to eat something wonderful and planning on getting to bed early this evening.
Blessings to each of you
Suzanne--the felt slasher!
