Felted vase


This week, I've been working on and off on a few of projects, the extra large Booga Bag, this felted vase and the shrug I want to give away. Well, I'm still working on the 5" of ribbing for the shrug and this last night I felted the vase. I have to say that I don't like it. I don't like the "hairy-ness" of the yarn. When I pulled it out of the washer I thought "I need to go get a razor and shave it. " Since I didn't want a lot of design on it, I didn't do the sewing designs that it called for and I'm glad that I didn't because that would have made it even more hairy. So chalk it up to experimentation and go on to the next. Maybe I'll like it better when it's dry and I can do something with it. Posted by Picasa

What kind of yarn did you use? I do like the vase; I've always loved grey and black together.

The vase looks cool, I think. The "hairiness" gives it character. And your felted bag is also nice.

Ive been looking for a felted vase pattern.

I purchased the pattern from www.patternworks.com . It's a Plymouth Yarn pattern. I did a search for "felted" I think anyway, you'll find the pattern easily there.
