Wedding Bowl!!

I have been to a wedding today, the first one for a long time...
it was a really happy and sunny occasion.
I knew I wanted to make something to give the happy couple, and as I'm not sure how to mount my flat pieces of wet felt I decided to needlefelt a bowl.
I was feeling a bit rusty but soon got into the swing of things. One of the edges had a slight dip, so I had  a thought and stabbed away....

I'm really pleased how its turned out....




 

Most of the wool is coloured shetland with the lighter flecks of merino silk blend.
For the orange heart I added some sari silk fibres I recently purchased from Felters Journey's 
All finished off the with couple's initials:


Wishing you both every happiness, a life full of bright colourful and fuzzy moments! xx

What a thoughtful and beautiful gift - I bet the happy couple will treasure it, Ali! Really clever to sculpt the wool into a heart shape, and I love the wooly initials on the back. Pleased to hear that it was a happy and sunny wedding, Liz x

What a lovely gift, all the better for being personalised.
I've been trying to think of something to give as a wedding gift for an impossible-to-buy-for couple and now you've inspired me to make something. Thanks!
