By Hand: My Next Felting Project

Using my original pattern for a felted mini bag, I recently knit another one using Galway Highland Heather wool. As you can see, I have yet to felt it.

This plum color should look yummy when felted.

I've decided to hand felt this project using a method similar to the one shown in Knitty. My cat's mouse in this blog post was hand felted by rubbing the wool vigourously in hot water. The mouse is made from Bernat Felting wool which was a cinch to felt by hand. I doubt if this Galway Heather will be as easy.

Anyone out there with experience in hand felting who could offer advice?

Happy felting!
