new project

I decided that I wanted a felted wool pin cushion - and the cost was more than I really wanted to spend, so I put on my thinking cap, did some testing and came up with the above. It's really not as big as I would like, so I think I will add more roving to this one. I started with some felted wool fabric, and needled it into a ball shape and then wrapped roving around it. I tried felting it by hand, but it's not very firm, so adding more roving and felting it again will improve it -- I hope!
