My first felting attempt

I took the rest of the mitten yarn I had left (cascade 220) and knit a cylinder on 10.5 needles. I made a little flap from garter stitch and sewed up the bottom. I tucked the corners in. I then put it in my washer on heavy duty hot/hot. Every once in a while for the first little bit, I fished around with tongs. After a while, I got involved in the book I was reading and stopped checking on it. It's really, really felted. Kind of cool. I formed it into the shape I was looking for and let it dry. Now I have to figure out a closure (button or snap?).
