Felting, minis and mess!
The above picture is the back of the wall felted picture. I really like it and thinking i''l make something intentionally needle felted the wrong way round, lol. Same with the wet felting too... strange, but i love it!
Yes, yes, i know this is a mini blog but i'm just too addicted to felting at the moment.
Yesterday could have kissed the postman when he delivered the wool i've been longing for, for what seems like ages.
I'm making this flower wall hanging for my Mums Birthday end of August, and although it seems like ages away with the amount i need to do i'll be lucky if it's finised in time.
Still loads upon loads left to do, like more felting, more fibres to add, more twirls and leaves to make, the little balls for the centre of the flower, lots of embroidery and on and on.
I've never done anything like this before and so just going with what my instinct tells me. Seems to be telling me the right way so far.
Here's what i did yesterday. The wet felt background took me hours but still need to needle felt this and add loads around the edge.... dont know what yet.
The bag so far. I need to needle felt more over the patterns i'm adding to secure them well. Will do so when i can buy a multiple needle felting tool. One needle alone is taking too long.
