A Partridge in a Pear Tree – Well a pear at least

IMG_3094 IMG_3096 IMG_3098

 

I love pears, the shape is so deliciously pleasing.

I read a book recently about felted items, basically get a pure wool item boil it into submission and then bend it to your crafty will.

 

I had found this mustard shetland wool sweater a while ago and boiled it to make a cushion for a friends new student flat, but I still had some bits left over.  I designed a little pear template, its too cold and windy to go outside and here is the result!

    1. Is it 100% wool? I know that if you use something with a pattern you have to allow that the pattern (eg fairisle) would be made smaller. Presumably your holes would do the same! Sounds worth having a try though next time you have your washer on hot! Let me know how you get on.
