This is my first forray into felting – I loved it. It was a bit risky, a bit daring…will it work or won’t it? Will it felt? Will it be too small or too big? Have I just wasted all my work and $40 worth of yarn? It felted up so well and I am very, very pleased with it. Now I wanna felt everything I have ever made. It ended up being a gift for my mother as it was recently her birthday. I knew it would end up going to one older female relative or another. Now I want to make more in funkier, more me colours. I did not make the marsupial pouch so I really want to give that a go, too. I think I might make lots of these for xmas gifts.
I even enjoyed the smell of the wet yarn – it made me recall washing my first dog, Ben and swimming with my second dog, Penny. I like the smell of clean, wet dog. Happy times.
