Needle Felting Fun
« on: October 11, 2011, 04:07:42 pm »
Hi everyone

...Had another go with some felting, I am hooked on it -- so easy to do and there is no end to what can be made.

I think I still prefer making little creatures like this little chap  :o 
--- and hope to have some good enough to give away as  Christmas gifts  ;)

Tilly,
I just love your little creature and am sure it would be popular christmas gifts. There is something quite lifelike about it.
You are making me want to give it a go now  :D

I love both - but especially the picture.  Very striking.

I am becoming aware that I will have to start doing things with wool when (think positive!) I get some Castlemilk Moorits.  So am keeping my ear turned towards info for beginners... (hint)  :)

Oh, now I love him.

Let us know when you have your online shop up and running!  (Patterns / instructions to make these would be as appealing as the toys and pictures themselves, y'know.)

Tilly set yourself up an etsy shop and get them on they will go like wildfire.

Do you use single needle or the clover multi needle system?

..... ellisr - I started with just single needle but now have holder which contains 4 needles all together which is great for getting quicker results on bigger flat work.
