Finally got around to taking a pic of my second Coco Felted Tote. This one felted waaaay better than the first. My theory is that coloured wool felts better than pale wool, perhaps due to a bleaching process? Anyway, the stitch definition is almost non-existent which is just what I wanted.
At long last I’ve been able to make some serious crafting time. I’ve been wanting to make a felted bag for soooooo long, and finally found time to have a go. This is the first handbag I’ve ever made, as well as my first attempt at felting. Despite 5 hot washes, the cream wool didn’t felt too well. However, it’s still a sweet little bag (now it’s been embellished). I’ve just done another one in the reverse of these colours, and the pink has felted beautifully. As soon as it’s dried and finished, I’ll post a pic.
No, not the biscuit. Or the people. Or the dogs. Or the clothing (cringe). No. I’m talking about the afghan throw. Blanket. Snuggly. Y’know. It’s the first afghan I made. Took ages to find a pattern that I actually liked. The typical granny square ones make me want to choke. Disgusting things. This one’s made in a lavender soft cotton mix. It has a good weight to it and covers a single bed nicely.
