Little felting project

These pieces were woven on a small 8 peg pegloom, using dyed merino tops. This is them after their first washing.
I wasn't sure what to do with them next, but decided eventually on wet felting them for texture and to strengthen the fabric. While I loved the colours I used, I felt they were a bit regimented, so the felting results in them looking like this now

I've left the wee 'dots' showing through - they're the warp threads - I like the spotty effect.   When they're dry and ready, I'll make them into a small pouch bag.
