Thanks for this review. I am thinking of using my hand-felted yardage using this jacket pattern (with slight variations) to make a sleeveless felt vest.

Oh nikki, I was so disappointed I couldn't vote yet because I wanted to vote for yours! Anyway, it is stellar! very wonderful. I hope you are able to enter it into some wearable art contest near you. alot of the quilt shows have wearable art contests. I am glad you showed me that felting can have detail as well. well done, Sandy in the UK

I'm amazed by how truly flamelike the design is. Fabulous!

Your jacket is both art and wearable, that's quite an accomplishment! Thank you for the detailed info on the process of felting, how fun to create your own fabric.

I love the pattern, the felting process, the resulting firey flames, the placement of the all came together so perfectly. I love this jacket on you! truly wearable art.

I did a felting class once & really enjoyed the process but it took all day just to get a piece the size of a bag. I can only sit here in amazement at your jacket. It's just gorgeous & must've taken quite a while!

What a fascinating process. The motif will keep you warm in addition to the wool garment. It looks particularly nice as worn (ie, in the 'not flailing your arms around' picture), where it seems like the fire is caressing you. Great jacket, and thanks for the detailed felting explanation.

Wow! What a great review and great coat. You captured that fire element so well. It's amazing. thank you for putting up such a detailed review with great pictures. I've been dying to try this type of thing and you made it all the more approachable. Fantastic work, thanks for sharing it!

I have just begun to read about and fall in love with wet felted garments. And I can say your jacket is an amazing piece of art. The artform does seem quite labor intensive, but what glorious results occurred. I simply am in awe of your work and must commend your final product in every detail.

What a gorgeous work of art, Nikki. I can imagine it over a slim black dress, or perhaps a slim black dress with a mermaid skirt. Stunning!!

This is incredible. I have seen wet felting demonstrated and it is an amazing process, very labor intensive. You have created a work of art.

This is absolutely fascinating, Nikki! Your work is just beautiful. I'm sure you will get many compliments on your lovely jacket.

Wow! You should get plenty of people coming up to you to ask where you bought your top.

Truly a work of art. Your detailed description of the felting process was fascinating. Beautiful result!

The jacket turned out fantastic! I love how the pattern fits so well with the fire theme felt. Great review and pictures as well!

Well, now I might have to change my mind - 'art to wear' doesn't usually strike me as either artistic or wearable, but your creation is both. Great details and amazing results!

Wow! What an amazing job you did, both with the fabric you made, and the jacket. I love it!!

Your review of the process was intriguing - thanks so much for so many photos, as it really helped me visualize what you did step by step. VERY helpful. The flame theme totally works. I can see how much time you spent laying out your layers to achieve the theme, and the pattern you chose works really well with the end felted product. Many kudos to you.
