so, wet felting has kept me sane the last two months. it's so great for relieving frustration! all that rolling, rubbing and beating does wonders at easing my mind haha. especially when I get to beat the hell out of it in the fulling process (ok so I'm not THAT rough with them...)

anywho, this is what I've been up to! I'd love to know what you think!

more pictures

they're all seamless except for the one of the top left which closes with a button made by loudxmouse Cheesy
oh and they're reversible so you can have two different looks with one cowl. I made them with merino, bamboo, silk, and some have alpaca (which I found out is a bit scratchy when felted) anyone else felt with alpaca and find it less scratchy?

these were made for the shop the swap secret santa. I was crafting for the awesome sheepblue!

cell phone case made specifically for her phone (I'm sneaky Cheesy) it's made of 19 micron merino so it wont scratch her phone.

tampon cozy! lined with houndstooth. I made the felt, sewed it to the fabric, then hand stitched it into a pouch using blanket stitch.
