First felting project is done. Yarn is Lion Brand Wool in "Autumn Sunset". (provided by a grant from the Rowe Ellis Foundation)
Here's before and after its magical trip through the washer and dryer:
After the first magical journey, I decided it needed more felting so I soaked it in hot water, rinsed it with cold, and tossed it back in the dryer.
And Baby Lion finally got a body. Also, I hate sewing yarn pieces together. Because I suck at it.
