how to make a yarn bowl by  elisabeth andrée

a while ago i saw on carolyn’s website a recipe for making a paste with which you can make a bowl out of yarn. she used a long piece of yarn (her bowl is quite chic), but i wanted to use my left overs. i took a glass bowl, then put cling foil on it. i soaked the yarn in the paste and then applied it all onto the bowl. i thought it was quite nice with my hands in the goo (is goo the right word, it sounds funny?). it took a very long time before it was dry.

this is the result. for a first attempt the bowl looks not bad, don’t you think? 

some pictures of the bowl still wet
