I have wanted to try felting for a long time. I finally had wool and found a pattern that I wanted.

So it took two night of working while falling asleep in bed and it was finished. I just had to felt it and I would have a purse organizer that I had wanted for a long time. WRONG!

Somehow it didn’t felt very well. Why? I have no idea. The orange did not shrink as much as the white (see the left end of the piece).
I have done all the suggestions for how to felt and it hasn’t made much difference. The only thing left is to boil it to get it hot enough to shrink more.

I am open to helpful suggestions.

Yes, I do plan to use it, even if it stays the same.
