Bowling For Fuzzies

I just finished using one of Lynn's new patterns; her Buttons and Beads Bowl. I actually made two, one with a mohair carry-along and one with just kureyon. Contrary to what we both thought, the mohaired bowl did not felt as well as the plain bowl, but it did end up with a lovely shimmer. A different mohair might get a different result. The only one I had on hand was a blend of kid mohair and merino.
Both bowls started at 5 inches by 8.5 inches. Finished dimensions for the pink, blue and green mohaired bowl were 3 1/2 inches by 7 inches, for the fire-bottomed green and blue bowl were 3 inches by 6 inches.
I will be embellishing these bowls with the contents of my broken costume jewery drawer, my bead box, and maybe some embroidery. The fun is just beginning! Anyway, on to the photos.

SQUEEE!!! Those are the cutest bowl I've ever seen!! They easily top my fabric wrapped bowls I made this year. Very very cool. You must post a pic when you finish embellishing them.
