Red felt pot

To keep motivated during the long scarf production process, I made another felt pot. This time I decorated the outside with some woollen yarn, looping it in an elegant pattern.

Of course, lesson 2 kicked in again – the yarn moved during the felt-making process to settle in its own random design. Despite being a self-confessed control freak, I’m surprisingly relaxed about this. Want to feel mellow? Make felt.
