Woolly Teardrops

Handmade pouches with my handmade polymer clay buttons.
Yesterday I knitted four of these teardrops. They are totally addictive - and so cute. After knitting they are felted two times in the washer and then handfelted for the final finish.

It takes only about an hour to knit one of them, and if you can knit it´s easy. I promise!! I´m using a lot of stash yarn - but have ended up buying new for the colors. Need I say more??

You´ll find the pattern for the teardrop pouch which Claire has published here. Thank you Claire!!!

All buttons are made by me of polymer clay. Mainly old canes.

The heartshaped one is faux bone and I´m really happy about that little pouch.

Before felting that pouch looked terrible - I regret not photografing it.

Not really my favorite effect yearn. But it became excellent to me when felted. It´s that feeling to give the control to the yarn. And it worked.

Sometimes we need to let go of control to enjoy life, to meet new people and to feel free. Maybe that´s what make me love these felted pouches.

I never how they will come out, and not two are alike.

And their imperfection just makes them perfect to me.

Enjoy this qoute from Ernst Fisher:

As machines become more and more efficient and perfect, 
so it will become clear that imperfection is the greatness of man
