So I made my first foray into felting this week.
Here's the before and after pictures:
Tomorrow I'll post pictures of me wearing my creation. I was really worried when I put it into the washing machine, kind of an "it's out of my hands now" worried, cuz I'm that sort of person... And it did turn out shorter than I wanted, despite the fact that I had prevously done a swatch, but oh well, I still think it's nice.
Angie came in last week and gave us felting swatches. The one on the left is Mohair, The one on the right is Suri Merino. We had read that Mohair often felted funky, but the Outback Mohair turned of well.
