These are my first felted slippers, made from white shetland wool and triangular pre-felted colourful scraps. I used a cardboard template much bigger than my feet to felt these seemless slippers. The felting and especially the fulling was hard work and took me a couple of hours.
Eventually it was rewarding and I love to wear them on my feet and feel the warmth and coziness.

This vessel was felted around a template like the slippers above. This time it was interesting for me to see how I would manage to shape it and will the shape stay the way I wanted it. I worked from the inside and outside of the vessel to shape it nicely. Because of the four layers of wool the vessel is strong enough to keep it's shape, as you can see in the photo below!
