I half expect to see captions telling us what new sea creature was just discovered.  They'd have to be tropical and salt water for their vibrant colors.  Grin

shiboried?  Huh

I think I made that word up. I used shibori or tie dye techniques in manipulating the felt. Basically you take a piece of damp felt and tie rocks or stitch pleats in it and then throw it in the dryer and it will felt down further and hold those shapes.
