And repeat. Yup, I have truly got the felting bug, both machine and needle.

I’ll let you know when I find a use for the baggy, mis-shapen mess that comes out of a hot wash in these particular cases – I’m determined to find a use for them!

The stripes also make it really easy to line up any poppers or buttons! Meanwhile, avoid M&S like the plague – they refuse to felt full stop!
