Turquoise felt bowl

The other day I had a go at making a felt vessel – I made a small round vase.

Using turquoise, light and deep blues, merino wool rovings, silk tops and also alpaca, I crafted this little bowl using the wet felting technique, around a resist.

The resist was made from a  double-sided piece of bubble wrap (two pieces sticky taped together back to back) and cut to the size and shape of one of my side plates.

After I’d finished, I used the little circle that I cut out to form the opening in the bowl and twisted it into a spiral, sewed on some glass beads, added a turquoise feather and attached it to the bowl.

It looks like a little up-turned hat lol.

I do think it’s cute though.  What do you think?

Anyway, as it was a first attempt, and turned out the shape I wanted, and not collapsing in on itself, I’m spurred on to make some more.

My ambitious mind is imagining tall slender vases with added detail, and perhaps some with wispy tops.
