Mini sugar bowl

sugarbowl mini

In a favourite cafe a few weeks ago I saw a delightful white ceramic sugar bowl with red spots. I wanted to make it in felt. This one is too tiny to really capture the original (cute wasn't really what I was going for). However, it was a very useful experiment: though I've done tiny bits of pre-felting embroidery before, this was a test of adding larger spots of colour. I just did satin stitch on the knitted fabric. I suppose I could have tried harder to make all the spots the same size, but I quite like them that way.

Great response to ceramics. Want to put it on my nose and clown around. Wonder what would happen if you built up layers of embroidery?

My mom used to make sugar eggs for Easter - that reminds me of them, as if the bowl itself was made of sugar.
