Wool Fabric and Pottery

This Fall I have been exploring new creative arts, including making ceramic dishes and dyeing wool fabric.  My ceramics class started in October, and I feel like I am just now beginning to get the hang of things.  My first bowls are now finished, and I am happy with the results.  The fact that each is unique (and a little wonky) is fine with me.  My favorite item so far is the bowl shown below.  It is the perfect size for oatmeal or yogurt, and best of all, it is purple!

I have always enjoyed overdyeing grey and brown spinning fibers, and I decided to try these same techniques on wool fabrics.  All of these wool fabrics are beautiful to begin with, and overdyeing them makes them feel a bit vintage.  Wool fabric is perfect for a variety of projects, including rug hooking, appliqué, and quilting, and more.  I will be posting all of these fabrics in my Etsy shop, so stay tuned.
