Inspiration

I was inspired by Suzanne's post, at Hooked On Felt, about her pod hanging in her garden.  I could not make up my mind on the colors, so I used my bag of wool scraps.  It's a pretty large bag and I think I got a little carried away with the size of my pod.  Mind you, I had no idea how to make one of these, but I figured all I could do was try......I used a ton of old plastic shopping bags for the resist.  I balled them into the shape I wanted and then taped them into a solid using packing tape.  I love how it brings a colorful spot to an otherwise shady spot in the garden.  It felt good recycling pieces of wool that are bits and pieces from projects that I have made while learning about this thing called felting.......
