I have been experimenting again! I guess that is not too unusual for me. I took a felted bowl that was a bit too bland for me and embellished!
I have a picture of the bowl pre felting. It is the beige one.
Unfortunately I took no picture of the felted pre-adornment state.
But here is the finished product (I think).
I added all the lines around the body of the bowl and also added some colour to the handle which was originally I-cord. It still is I-cord just flattened a bit.
How did I do it? Well a while ago I purchased this super duper Clover felting tool.
The yellow and green handle contains felting needles. All you have to do is place the item that you are attatching pieces to on the brush, unlock the needles then plunge the needles in and out of fabric until they are felted together! I had so much fun just grabbing left over yarn bits and arranging them around the bowl and felting them in. I didn't preplan I just went and went until it felt (ha ha) done. I found that I could just let my creativity take over when doing this. And! The results were almost immediate! I love instant gratification!!
If you live the Durham, Ontario region these are available at Myrtle Station Wool in Myrtle Station on Hwy 12.
Next time I do it I'll be sure to document each phase.
