I had to wash/spin it in hot and cold 4 full times to get the fabric dense enough for the grommets.
Here it is drying again. Interesting use of my hair clips, eh?
Then, came putting in the silver grommets.
It took me a bit to figure out how to get the grommets firmly in the fabric and I did have to use my scissors to cut a hole, which is completely terrifying the first time but not so bad after the 4th or 5th grommet.
I didn’t like how the felted strap looked, so I picked up some black leather and braided a strap instead. I put some silver rock-like beads at one end to keep the strap in place and knotted it.
And it’s finished!
