Thought I'd post some of my latest felt jewellery creations. These are called felt cocoons. Each cocoon has an object inside. The first, a little owl inhabitant! The second, a felt ball in contrasting vibrant teal. Enjoy!

those are pretty neat. the one with the teal inside looks like it should have a pretty butterfly or something crawling out spreading its wings!
I really like the color of the one with the owl in it too. Smiley

Thanks everybody!

feets - if you start with instructions for a felted vessel, over a bowl or balloon - you'll get the idea. Can't give away full secrets though as to the latter part of the moulding - it involves further felting though!
