Dressing up for St. Louis

Kris has been given a" wet" felted purple wool sweater and hat decorated with bumble bee buttons! I found the sweater at one of the local thrift stores and promptly put it in the washing machine with the hottest water, a little soap and one of my grandson's hard rubber balls.... Then I let the machine do its magic... when it was done, the wool was firmly felted! I finished the raw edges with blanket stitching.
Kris is looking forward to a road trip Sunday...when we are off bright and early for the Bright Star Show and sale.
