Learn something new

Well I did just that on Saturday ... I went to a workshop at Hatfield House on needle felting.  Oh boy was it fun.

I created these three items using the different techniques in needle felting as demonstrated by Lucynda Howard, a very friendly and knowledgeable woman.

I am now hooked and need to source some needles and foam.  I have some wool that my kind friend, Janice, gave me over a year ago now from when she showed me how to "wet felt" that was great fun too.

A bird shaped using a biscuit cutter.
















Then using a piece of felt as backing, applying colours to "paint a picture".






Here is a 3D mouse I made using the last technique.  I do think he is rather cute if I must say so myself.  haha

fantastic Tracey! I love all the things you've made. Have been sorely tempted to have a go at this myself, but so far resisted....no room/time for any more crafting addictions!

Wow! These are very impressive Tracey. I can see a whole new lot of goodies arriving for you to play with!

These are fab Tracey!! I love your little mouse too. I take it that it's a bit easier on the arms than wet felting ;) xxx

Awe Tracey, I love all your felt makes, they are brilliant. My fave has to be the painted one because I love the colours but your little mouse comes a very close second, sooo cute.
