Not For Feet

After a yarn delivery, I finally managed to finish the felting project I started last week. It should have been a quick two or three day project, but having to get more yarn stretched that out. Then I had to felt it. And then I had to wait for it to dry. Ugh, that took forever. But now my little slipper box is all finished!

Felted Mitered Bowl

The name is a bit of a misnomer though. It is neither for slippers or a box. It's really a bowl and I made it out of the yarn I had leftover from my Christmas slippers (okay, plus what I had to buy to finish it off). I wanted to make something to corral the things I keep on the lower shelf of my chair-side table since I keep knocking things off of it into the trash and I wanted to stop losing DPNs from that. I don't think I'll have that problem anymore!

Doesn't it hold everything so nicely? Pretty big difference from how it looked before felting!

Unfelted Box

Such fun! And even with having to buy more yarn, I did end up burning through a little bit of my stash with this. It's nice to find a useful and fun project to use up some of the odds and ends I have leftover from other projects!
