Go back about 3 years ago, My mom-in-law took a class and when it was over, she was no longer interested in pursuing it any longer so she gave me some supplies. I had no idea what it was all about. Two foam squares. Some sharp sticks, and few piles of wool and a book. I thanked her and put it away and forgotten alllll about it.
A month ago, I was itching to learn something new. I didn't want to go to the craft store and get too overwhelmed and spend too much money on something I may not even like doing.
So I remembered the supplies so I dug it out. Looked at the book...
It looked cute... So I went ahead and learned more about it. It's an instruction book. Different dog breeds. How much wool for this or that. Etc.
So, I gave it a try. My first one:
Yes, Nikki, that's Buddy... I no longer have him, but I promise you, I'll make a new one! I just want to make another one that looks MORE like him. :-)
I realized I do like needle felting! I started looking at more pictures on Pinterest and started pinning those that inspires me the most. My Pinterest on Needle Felted
Practice, practice, practice......
Then I started moving away from animals and did these:
I have to say, it is pretty addicting! It's basically poking a wad of wool with a needle until it's a tight little sculpture.
And I ended up finding one of my favorite online wool store where they sell wool bundles and needles for needle felting.
Based in south Oregon. I ordered from them few times so far, and loved their products.
Here is the website if you're interested in browsing:
I posted few of my works on my etsy shop if you'd like to look there.
Thank you for looking!
