My First Felting Project

Our local Women's Health centre held a lunch and Felting class to raise money for Ovarian Cancer Awareness. This is the first time I had done felting. We made a little bowl/vase. I think the trick is to make sure you spend a lot of time on the rubbing to get the wool really well matted. It was a great class and all the ladies were lovely. It's also a really good cause, and something we should all be aware of in our own lives.

  1. It looks really good but I just haven't been brave enough to tackle felting.
