I made a slashed rectangle for this month's Bead Journal Project piece. I saw one of these once that was really long, and was hanging from one of its corners so that it sort of spiraled down with the center slashes gaping open. I liked that one a lot. My own attempt...not so much! I didn't have time to do one that was long enough to get the full effect, so maybe I should have just saved it for another month.
Here's what the felt looks like after you've slashed it. You can see that all you have to do is alternate between slashing the middle and the sides.
