Millefiori felt beads

Millefiori is the name of beautiful glass beads from Murano near Venice.  We can imitate their patterns with felt by making a long snake or sausage with multiple layers of wool then cutting the up when they’re done.

The ones above started with a thin roll of bright blue wool which I lightly prefelted then covered the sausage with a layer of white.

Again I lightly prefelted the sausage then laid it onto a layer of black wool, positioning the green and brown rolls next to the white:.

After that it is a matter of roll, roll, roll your sausage until its felted.  Once dry cut the sausage into slices.
