How-To: Make Felted Costume Pieces in your Kitchen

Craft & Design Home Yarncraft

Hand-knitted pieces can be the perfect way to add a little more personality to your Halloween costume, and felting is a great option for personalizing the look, shape, and fit of your accessories! When Christina posted her tutorial for hot bath felting with kitchen tools on the Lion Brand Yarn site, I couldn’t believe how perfectly her little pink piggy ears had transformed! They are just the right shape and size, and look way more comfortable than the usual latex prosthetics!

    Melissa: While I certainly see your point, they’re hardly a fail! They also look just like the felted piggy ears that they were meant to be.
    I do love a craft with multiple interpretations, though. ;)

    I saw what Melissa saw at first. But now I can totally see the pig ears.
