Felting wool

Cae, Rowan and I have been working very hard on a felted wool pumpkin project I am doing for a crafting group I am in called "Bits 'o' Goodness". I have been wanting to try this project out for awhile, but was worried about messing it up. The swap I am in is for a fall nature table, and what is more autumny the pumpkins? So we had to give it a go. With the help of Cae, Row, an egg gourd, and the drier we made 5 felted pumpkins and ten felted acorns. It took about 5 days to make them all, but the boys were right there with me hands in warm soapy water quishing wool about. I think the turned out really well for a first timer!
