As promised I am doing a follow up to show you the before and after picture of Frick and Frack. Like both males and females, a good shave always improves the way they look. Felted objects are not exception to the rule.
Here is Frick's before shot. Frick is a very hairy bowl!
...and now the newly shaved Frick. Check out how much hair came off of Frick
Now a newly shaved Frack. Much better!I am by no means a felting expert but I feel like I am getting better at understanding what I like in my felted projects. I think when the yarn diet is over later this year, I will buy some more colorful yarn and felt with brighter colors and invest in a book that talks about techniques that I might be missing. Felting is scary the first time but after you've done 5 or 6 projects, you get more confident in what the expected results might be. So, that's Frick and Frack at their best! So try some felting today. You will totally be delighted with yourself.
