Embellished Felted Vessel

Remember my foray into wet felting?

Back in November, I made this little felted vessel; I wanted to embellish it, but I put it aside, because I was busy working on my Head-to-Head challenge neckpiece (and working, and working...)

I finished the neckpiece a week ago today (yay!) - and started embellishing my felted vessel on Tuesday of this week, after enjoying a few days away from tiny seed beads.

After 2 days of stitching, here is my bead-embroidered vessel:
I added one of my enameled flowers, and embroidered a stem and leaf for it - the leaf is a little outsized for the flower, but that's OK!


I reined myself in, and didn't go all overboard with the embellishments. I like it!

I like it too! I have just started needle felting and really enjoy working with wool! Your vessel is pretty and you embellished it just enough!

I love how you finished this! I followed all the meandering details in each of your photos. Fun!
