Making Wool Needle Felted Scented Buckwheat Sachet Pillows @ Parris House Wool Works
Jul 14 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Making Wool Needle Felted Scented Buckwheat Sachet Pillows @ Parris House Wool Works

Join teacher/fiber artist Beth Miller just in time to celebrate the arrival spring with these freshly scented sachet pillows!

These are small (4 x 4 or 4 x 6 inch) sachet pillows using your choice of base wool and a wide variety of wool roving colors to make a design and then needle felt it on! If you prefer not to draw your own design I will have some ready made on hand to choose from.

We will also learn the easy art of making buckwheat seed sachet filling using essential oils. The great part about using buckwheat seeds is that the resulting pillows may be either microwaved to warm or frozen to cool and then used as soothing ache & pain relievers.

Finish the whole project using a simple yarn whipstitch technique to close the felted pillow case.

We will provide all materials to make the pillows, and felting blocks and needles to borrow for the process.
