Ok, I finally finished the Hedgehog, and he is in the machine felting as I type this. I even remembered to take before pix. lol Thank you, Debbie for the eyelash yarn, because in a fit of stupidity, I threw all mine away figuring I would never use it again. And of course, now I want to make ALL. THE. HEDGEHOGS. Sigh.................
Before felting- kinda looks like roadkill :-)
After felting in my Kenmore Oasis, which doesn't have an agitator thingy. He doesn't look very comfortable jammed between the iron & the gallon of distilled water, but it is holding him in the shape I need him to be.
The Oasis does an ok job of felting, I just have to run the water in the slop sink to get it as hot as possible to go in the machine. I throw a couple of big bath towels in with whatever I'm felting, and run it through two wash only cycles. I have no idea what yarn this is. It had no labels. He will have eyes tomorrow. :-) Still not sure what I'm doing for a nose, though.
