Beaded Felted Vessel
I had some wool felt left from other projects when I saw Katie's felting work on The Red Tin blog. I was inspired and decided to try making a felted vessel of my own. I first used the wet-felting method on a small rubber ball to get the rounded shape. After a day of drying, I added more wool felt by dry needle-felting to make it thicker. When that was done, I submerged it in hot water to shrink it, patted it dry and formed the final shape. Then came another day for drying and it was done except for the bead and charm embellishments. This little vessel measures 1" high and 2" across. The photo below shows the back.
