Horrible Bowl





Don't let anyone tell you that making a bowl using a Gertie Ball as a resist is an easy task! (Of course, I have since heard that felters use cut-off pantyhose tops to hold the fiber in place. Duh!)
Picture this...me wrapping a wet, soapy ball with fiber, covering it it netting and rubbing it-trying to keep everything intact, and hoping for the best.
As you can see in the bottom photo,at first, it was a mess. One entire section had peeled away, and it looked like an animal that was molting!
...but with a little creative piecing and machine sewing (I am not fond of 'embellishments' per se, but this was necessary!)...it's now not too bad. Kinda arty, in fact!
