If you remember my post about the tea cozy that went wrong, and-then-it-all-went-wrong I have now fixed it. First I had to needle felt the pieces that fell off, back on. I only needled the middles so I would still get the cracked mud effect. The hardest part was placing the pieces in the right places.
This is what the inside looked like.
The next step was to tape it all again. I didn’t want the edges to felt down flat.
I did trim the pieces that were touching so they would not felt together again. I rewet the whole thing and started fulling. Lots of rolling on my washboard to get it well shrunk and stiff enough.
It turned out really well.
And a better angle so you can see the texture.
so disaster averted and all is well. Now I am back to getting ready for the Twist festival this coming weekend. Twist If you can make it make sure to drop by and visit me in booths 57 and 58.
