With the help of "el Cowboy" I managed to create some pretty awesome little treasure eggs for hiding my pocket dolls in.
I think having a harder surface to agitate the wet eggs on has really helped to firm up the felt and speed up the process of felting them. I love how they turned out. It still took about an hour per egg. My hands are very dry and a mess after all that soapaction...
I would have loved to find such a treasure egg as a child. My felted eggs can hold a small rabbit or one of my pocket dolls. But they could easily hold a piece of candy or other small gift. So if you would like to just order an empty shell don't hesitate to ask for one.
They come in pink, purple, blue, and green.
