This tutorial features revised versions of my two Felted Vessel Tutorials. I have combined them together in a convenient, easy to read PDF format. My free tutorials are still available and you can find them on flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/zedster01/sets/72157616727173325/
I have updated and rewritten the instructions to make them more detailed and added some extra photos to help illustrate a couple of the steps better. There is also an additional 6 pages of Tips and Handy Hints for achieving different results and effects.
You don't need any special tools, just your usual felting supplies. The 3-D resists used in the projects are one that I handmade from bubble wrap and tape, and the other is the bladder of an old football (soccer ball). A good quality inflatable balloon filled with water also makes a good resist.
