Blocking Sophie

Felting & blocking looks to be a success so far!

It only took about 1 & 1/2 cycles in the washing machine. I put Sophie in a pillowcase and washed her on the hot wash/cold rinse cycle with an old pair of jeans with a bit of Dawn dishsoap. To block, I stuffed her with 4 or 5 washcloths. I can't wait for her to dry!

It has been really hard to capture Sophie's true color so far. I like this picture, because you can actually tell that she is celery green, not grey or khaki.

Your Sophie looks fantastic -- I'm jealous of how fast she felted! Your blog was an inspiration... thanks for the html help!
