Many talented artists donated work for the BowlFest silent auction. The items up for auction will be on display at the Craft Center May 18-June 1, and people will be able to view the auction items online soon.
I was asked to do a felted bowl, but I just couldn't leave my bowl empty so I filled it with felted fruit. For once I remembered to document the progress of this project....
Naked fruit without their clothes! Their insides are entirely wool, no filler. I guess you could say they are full of fiber!
Now the fruit get their skins!
I think the peach and the banana are my favorite. I had to "peel" the banana because no matter what I did to the closed banana it looked way too phallic. And this is family friendly event! I think it's even cuter now.
All of the fruit is life sized. You know, I really like my lemon too.
Here's the whole bowl of fruit ready to fetch a lovely price for charity!
