 Did you guess that it was a felted bowl?

 I really enjoyed my very first attempt at any form of felting yesterday in Sudbury. 
Katie Walker has been doing this for sometime and is a wonderful and entertaining teacher. She was VERY patient and generous with me and gave me loads of inspiration.

 Green is my favorite colour, so i chose that as the main with wisps of blue , lime green and white.
I am sure I have not finished yet though as I am itching to embellish with some seed beads and a tiny bit of stitching.

Katie wastes nothing, so i kept the bit i cut out at the top to use later. I want to have a little go at some needle felting and this is ideal to practice on.
I have lots of ideas buzzing around in my head now - just wish I had a few more hours in the day!!

I shall pop the photos of "the beginning of the process at Katie's workshop once I have pinched them from the school's network- ohh did I tell you it was a school trip? 

Love Soojay xxx

WOW would never have guessed that was your first attempt Soo. You must be over the moon with it. It's stunning and can't wait to see it with beads and stitching on it. :D x

Wow...this is fantastic! I got to try a little bit of felting when I went to a children's craft day (!) and I got slightly hooked. I think the adults were more into it than the children. This has really inspired me to do some more.
