Flat Felt Part Two: Defining the Project
So, what on earth to do??
After considering (and deciding against) making a purse...
...since it would get too dirty...
...I was puzzling over the question with my wonderful felting guru, Kim.
She suggested that I make lampshades out of the felt.
I had been wanting new lamps in my bedroom for some time...
...but no one had taken the hint and gotten them for me at Christmastime. :(
The other week, while finally retrieving my Winter clothes from a closet...
...I found two uninspired ceramic lamps that no one was currently using.
These, I thought, would exhibit the felt in its best light! Grin.
For, as you can see (above), the felt doesn't look like much without illumination.
(It's unfortunate, but I think that in my zeal to make sure the inclusions were 'safely' affixed, I very nearly buried them!!)
Just wait until you see what a little 'star power wattage' does for these babies, though!!
