Shibori felt

Yesterday I made some Shibori felt, it uses the same technique as Shibori dyeing. First I made a piece of flat felt, then I used plastic beads and trapped them in the felt with rubber bands.
Next I put the felt in a cloth bag and put it through a 40 degree wash in the washing machine.
This is what the felt looked like when I removed the plastic beads and rubber bands.

Reminds me of a nudibranch, the Spanish Dancer.
