A couple weeks ago I posted some cozy cowboy slippers created from Kunin’s new Premium Eco-fi Plus felt which is an 8oz weight. It is an ideal weight for wearables and accessories. Now I know colder weather is the last thing on anyone’s mind but how about a stylish and comfortable new jacket. Running out the door early morning either of these jackets would be great to throw on. Both jackets featured here are Very Easy Vogue patterns, V8780 and V8930. (voguepatterns.mccall.com) The black jacket is top stitched in red and lined with red.
So what is Eco-fi Plus felt exactly? “It is an 8-ounce premium felt that uses natural silver and copper cleansing ions to resist mold, mildew, and odor and is made from recycled plastic bottles.
Eco-fi Plus is the clean and sustainable felt that is ideal for garment, accessory, decorating, and home décor crafting projects.
Mold, mildew, and odor protection is provided by our unique, patented blend of natural and safe silver and copper ions.”
To care for Eco-fi Plus machine wash normal, gentle dry, no bleach, iron low heat.
It does not fade, cuts without fraying, die-cuts beautifully and both sews and glues easily.
There are ten color choices in the Premium Eco-fi Plus sold cut by the yard. It is available through major chains but please check individual stores in your area for availability.
Even though fall still seems a long way off, take a rainy day to create maybe a cute jacket for back to school or fall inspired pillow covers!
