A Needle Felted Bowl

I used an inexpensive styrofoam ball as a base for needle felting this 3x5” bowl. I don’t have a use in mind, but I’m sure I’ll find one!

I have always loved your little bowls-felted down and now needle felted-you could place your little critters in them

How clever to use a styrofoam bowl to use as the base. This was beautifully done. You have certainly gotten creative with this needle felting.

Sorry I'm so late visiting and answering your question about dyeing with tea bags. If tea bags have the remnants of tea, or still contain the tea, they will change colors. Tea contains tannin, which is a mordant. I have no idea what color it would change to, but I know when I paired tea bags (full and wet) with a rusty chain, I got the most incredible black, gray, tan, beige, and brown. The tea was green, which has the best tannin. The fabric was out of this world. I've not made anything, even my eco-dyed fabric that turned out as good as that did. To answer your question, if you pair tea bags with rust, you'll get browns and black. But I have no idea what I would get if paired with cabbage.
