Today I bought a wool sweater for 50 cents at a yard sale and felted it, just to see how it would go - and as a possible first step toward the awesomest blanket in the world. See how it came out, all fuzzy and squishy and cute? But here's the thing: it's totally heavy.
To reinforce this message, my dad showed me one of the felted goat hair poncho things they brought back from Nepal 35 years ago, and it, too, weighs a million pounds. Ok, a thousand. Ok, let's just say it weighs a lot. So I came to this epiphany: a whole blanket made of felt would weigh a freaking TON.
This means it's time to think up alternate felt crafts. I think this purse is pretty cute. As are these mittens. Any other suggestions?
