fluffed up

remember this...

frogged skull tote

well i did eventually finish it on smaller needles and of course i forgot to take a pic. everything was going great guns, the intarsia came out good, and i even sewed on the handles right after i made them (i'm terribly lazy when it comes to sewing up projects)

a week or so ago i finally got around to felting it. this is what i ended up with...

skull tote disaster

a mass of fluff in my washing machine.

not only did it all fall apart because of my really bad short-take intarsia technique, the wool didn't even felt. urgh! so annoyed.

damn you lincraft cozy wool and your non-felting properties!

ugh damn that wool! I think I would've had a nervous breakdown if I did that much work on it and it ended up being partly destroyed in the washer! 0_0
