Wet felted pod bag
This is a wet felted pod bag I felted today, using instructions from a book which I will be reviewing later for the blog. I've used the same wool I used for my scarf but without the base white color so I used merino in blue and chocolate and the last bits of kid mohair from my friend Tess.
I used a template out of bubble wrap cut into a circle, I laid the wool down first, dampened it and then placed the template onto that. Then I cut out a smaller circle with a whole in that to create the whole in the pod bag. And I massaged it gently to form a skin and then rolled it all bubble wrap and all in a bamboo mat and rolled for about 500 rolls.
I'm quite happy with the results
