Felting extravaganza

Well, due to extreme cold, this whole week end was dedicated to crafting. I finally dyed a bunch of wool that I have stashed in anticipation of a felting idea-explosion, here are the chronicles...First... Boil a pot of cool-aid and food dye, let the wool simmer for about 15 minutes or so, then drain, rinse and let dry. Beautiful and non-toxic. Next I experimented with wet felting, agitating with my hands, hot water and glycerin soap. Then I went crazy and sewed the felt with my sewing machine, needle felted, ripped apart, etc. This was my final product for tonight...
