A Slightly Felted Mess & A Very Clean Balloon

My mum sent me a kit yesterday to make felted bowls by wrapping wool around an inflated balloon and then putting it in the washing machine. I didn't end up with bowls, just a slightly felted mess.

I put it through two washing cycles but most of the wool just fell off the balloon. I think I will probably try it again but won't inflate the balloon so much next time. I certainly won't be buying the kit as it costs £11.95 and all you get are four balloons and some tights to put the balloon in when it goes in the washing machine.

I was very impressed that you can actually wash an inflated balloon without it popping!
