Wet Felted Book Cover

I wanted to experiment a little and use up some odds and ends of wool. I am busy this weekend and will miss the workshop held by Nicole and Emily, which was felting a journal cover. So I knocked up this little sucker for my A6 art journal. It is a little book I can keep in my bag for when the mood strikes and I need to jot it down before that sieve of a brain I have loses it. Forever gone into the ether.

Pretty groovy don't you think? I used embroidery thread to patch up some of the little holes and to turn in the edges, as it came out a bit longer than required. All up it took about 40 mins and then a day to dry in the shade.
