You may remember a while ago I posted a sneaky peek of something I'd been designing. That something is spoons. After collecting some ideas together on Pinterest, I began working on the first pattern for bringing the idea in my head to life...
The first attempt didn't quite work. I made it using two layers of felted wool, with darts to achieve the spoon shape, but the whole thing was a bit on the flat side. The idea then began to develop towards the idea of welsh love spoons.
This one is a bit more like what I am trying to sculpt.
It's still a bit of a work in progress design wise,
but as a project, it's certainly fulfilling the desire to move away from the cute animals are try something a bit different. Only problem is, they are hard to photograph without it looking,
...a little bit phallic!
