To bead or not to bead...

So I am making papier mache beads. Pretty cool. But now I need to learn how to make beads out of felted wool. I saw some pretty rad necklaces on flickr that inspired me. They had a combo of the two types of beads and it rocked!! So, I'm on a mission. My last attempt to felt wool sort of failed. I mean, I've felted them in the washer and dryer, of course, but this just won't work for this project! Anyhow, stay tuned, because you're going to love the outcome...or at least I hope you do!

Ooh- I want to see. I love wool so much right now. Felting is the bestest part. I love seeing what it does and how it changes. Pics please! If you do make beads out of wool, I might buy one ;)
And I want to see papier mache ones too.

Felting is fun! I've only felted old sweaters and stuff. I've always wanted to knit some stuff of my own and felt it, but never got around to it. Would you believe I haven't picked up knitting needles at all this year?? So weird, because I could have made Sapphire some really cute things. I mean, I did knit her a bunting and it was beautiful but that was when I was pregnant with her! Anyhow, I'm rambling...didn't get around to making the felted beads yet, lol. I have to buy some wool and stuff for roving...but, that's another story lol
