Putting Together the Felting I did Last Summer!

Last summer, 
I tried different types of felting--both wet and dry.
I made several different pieces.
Since then, I have been looking at them trying to decide whether I should just throw them out or make something with them.
I made my first vessel.
This felted vessel is about a half an inch high.
I thought it would be bigger when I started.  I thought it would look like a cup.
Oooooops!  It didn't!
This was supposed to be a bracelet to wear.  Instead, it reminded me of the hairstyle worn by Princess Leia.
So, it stayed in the bag.
This was supposed to be a wall hanging.
Again, it shrunk more than I expected.
Last but not least, is a small heart that I dry felted.  I liked this, but I had no idea of what to do with it.
So, the other day,
I played.
Put together, I think they look kind of funky.
The next step will be to add some of my beads.
I might also add some pearls.
What do you think?
Stay tuned!
More will follow later!!

Very nice. I enjoy felting so much both needle and wet, did you see the felted dolls on my blog? Please stop by to check them out.

Definitely funky. Wondering how it will all come together with your beads. Just experiment and have fun! You have a way of seeing things that somehow work.

I love the turquoise "vein" in the orange and red wall hanging piece. This felting stuff looks like lots of fun, especially the experimenting part!
