So what is Persia doing with that Teddy Bear?
The story starts with a pile of old Goodwill wool sweaters I have been making a stash of for a while. The reason for this are felt projects I want to do... mittens, stocking caps, and the like. If you wash a wool sweater in hot water and throw it in the dryer a couple of times you end up with beautiful felt. (More on that at a later date...)
You also end up with a washer and dryer full of wool fuzz.
A lot of wool fuzz...
Since it looked like shredded up roving I decided to see if I could needle felt with it.
After a lot of serious poking, I ended up with a tiny bear.
A little fuzzy wuzzy dryer linty Teddy Bear.
(The grey is from the felted sweaters, the colored areas are from roving I have.)
