Chipper- those look good. theyre cute. how small are they?? they look like little egg cozies.  Smiley

Veludo- thanks ! Hope it works out.

*another thing is that you don't have to make a vessel-if your vessel doesnt turn out like you wanted, have no fear---it is perfect for the beginnings of a handbag, or hat.  Wink

they are small.  I was thinking maybe wee little bags for the kids' treasure but now am thinking I may get some of those tiny plastic eggs and put jingle bells inside and put the egg in the ball, stitch closed and felt some more for kitty toys.  I couldn't think of anything bigger to use when we did this, but the balloon will be perfect!   I think our "vessels" will probably end up being bags (so many treasures, so few bags)

Thanks again for the great tute!

just a question, i'm curious what you mean in the last step about "speed drying" and preventing it. what is the effect of a speed dry on the felt? i often put my wet felted projects on the radiator to hurry them up, is this bad? :O

um... haha. i'm not sure what you mean babe.. the iron steams a majority of the water out of the felt before air drying. preventing the iron from touching the balloon or it may melt..........
try the iron before putting it on your radiator to finish drying. or try to hang it in your bathroom...
otherwise i havent a clue what you're asking ...heehee. sorry..
