Felted bowls are my thing... I love making them and my head is constantly swirling with new ideas.
One area that I have been focused on is making larger and sturdier bowls. I have found that the larger the bowl, the more flimsy it is. But by doubling the sides strength is added.
The example below shows the bowl before and after the felting process and I have used the same pine cone in each picture to indicate scale and the amount of shrinkage to be expected.
Before - with double knit sides tacked down with matching yarn:
After - the sides are thick and strong!
This bowl is drying right now, but will be available for sale early next week in both my etsy and my artfire studios
My next project - bigger and better yet!
