3KCBWDAY5 - Something a Bit Different!

Ode to Wonder Washer


Wonder Washer is its name

Felting in it - not the same.

Give me back my old machine.
Felting magic, clothes get clean.



This contraption is a hoot!

Sloshes, churns, and gives a scoot.

The finished bag, uneven and creased.
Came out OK, and so I ceased.



My motto stands: Nothing is simple!
Not a crime if there's a wrinkle.
A simple bag, once distressed,
Now is dressed:
Nuno, knit, and needle blessed.


3-felt bags are my goal.
Process/product is a whole.
Oh, PLEASE help me get a life
Reduce the stress for far less strife.

Before!
Wonder Washer is its name!
Felting in it - not the same!
But I prevailed and so I stand
A fan of this amusing brand!

Finished Bag - front


Finished Bag - back

Great ode to your washer the bag looks really good to me. Now I have to again go through the pain of proving I am not a robot:) Please feel free to delete my previous bad effort
