first felting project!

a recent post was about a purse that i made (pattern courtesy of crochet spot). after making the purse, i realized it would have to be lined so things wouldn’t fall through. i’ve been wanting to felt something for awhile now, so i decided this would be the perfect project to try it on! it was a pretty quick project, and i got some yarn on sale so it wouldn’t waste too much money if i ended up ruining it. i am really pleased with how it turned out! i made it bigger so that it would shrink down to the original size. the original pattern calls for 10 rows; i made it 15.

i apologize for the poor photo quality – my camera died, so these were taken with my phone.

About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
