Felted Boxes felted at last
Thank you for all the good suggestions on how to get the felted boxes to felt. Here is my first set. They've been sent off as a long overdue wedding present. (Practically a first anniversary gift acutally)
I learned a lot about felting on this project - mostly that size 10.5 needles on double strand bulky is way, way too small. In fact, a correction has been made to the pattern. It now calls for 15s. I think that might have made the felting easier. Nonetheless, they did eventually felt and they are a lot of fun to make. I may try another set in bright pinks and purples for my 4-year-old.
Love the colors on your boxes, really bright.
I use mine for all kinds of things, the small one is great for CD's in the car
