Our master class will tell you how to make a wool belt with your own hands. A belt or belt is necessary for man. They are needed to maintain clothes on the body, to decorate it, to complement the ensemble. This is a necessary and important element. Belts and belts are masculine, feminine, and childish. There are many types and uses of belts. And our today’s task is to make a healing belt.
- Dog or cat hair – not less than 50 grams.
- The cloth.
- Gum (6-7 cm).
- Elastic length 50-60 cm.
- Velcro 20 cm.
The dog’s coat has a special structure, it is endowed with healing properties. Products made of wool improve blood circulation and warm up the back well. The belt is able to seriously help with rheumatism or when you have seriously chilled your back. We spread wool on the film.
First row. We spread wool on cellophane from right to left with a small overlap.
The second row is the other way round – from left to right, also overlapped. The third row is superimposed as the first. The fourth is like the second. This cake is about 35/80 cm.
Next is preparing a soap solution. Soap soap and dissolve in hot water. Soap should be the simplest, without glycerin and additives. The resulting solution is more convenient to pour into the spray, but you can just in the jar. Moisten the coat with a soapy hot solution until our “pie” becomes thinner. It is very important not to damage the layers! Otherwise, felting may not work.
Next, take a long stalk of a mop or spade and wrap our soap “pie” on this stick.
Next, we start to roll (roll) wool. We ride for 15-20 minutes. Unwind. If the "pie" did not fall down, take and fold in half.
Turn over, reel again and continue rolling.
Decreased size – do not worry, it should be. The next stage is flushing. Rinse with hot water in the pelvis. Better to do it with air conditioning to remove the smell of a dog. During the flush a lot of waste.
Give the drain water. Dry the resulting felt, but not on the battery. Better in the sun or outside. Steam iron, which will give wool a greater density. Carefully comb out with a scroll in order to comb out spiky guard hairs. Next, take the scissors and cut off the excess.
You can leave the belt in this form, just sew a couple of straps and wear, but we will make it more comfortable.
In the future, we will need a sewing machine, but you can also flash it manually. The sizes turned out to be 20/60 cm. Customized for yourself or for the one for whom you made the belt. The work is done.
