i had so much fun making this...my first felted object! it would actually make an excellent first knitting project or all-around crafting project since there is much craftiness involved...knitting, felting, sewing and beading! i still have to sew on the ribbon ties that turn it into a wristlet, but i was so excited to get this far, i just had to post this little pictorial of the process so far.
step 1: knit a square
step 2: hot wash with flip flops!
step 3: tada: felt!
step 4: cut in to a circle
step 5: using template, make v-shaped slits
step 6: choose your embellishments
step 7: overstitch all raw edges
