Experimental Bowls

I have added a new element into the mix for my fiber bowls, by trying wool roving in place of the lint.  The color works out particularly well with the heart theme.  One thing I have discovered is that the roving doesn't mold as easily as does the lint base.  Yet, I like the airy quality that the yarn brings to the finished piece.  For the hearts, I cut out fabric which gets stitched over as per usual.  To see a past tutorial on bowls click here.  We will see where this process leads...
