Our latest craft project is needle felting. This involves using dyed wool rovings and sharp barbed needles to create wool sculptures and pictures. I have seen it at craft exhibitions alongside wet felting which I have dabbled with a little. Recently, whilst surfing the web, I came across a few needle felted items and my interest was stirred! Of course once I shared this with my clever, sewing sister we were off on a journey of discovery. If you have an hour or two to spare and want to see some clever stuff - just google "needle felted sculptures" or "needle felted pictures" and see what the really clever folk are doing!
You will see from my photos that we are just dabbling but its great fun.
Mine are the little pictures which I have mounted on cards so that my daughter can sell them for the charity she works for.
I have sculpted a gerbil and a meerkat but I think I need more practice!!
On the other hand my sister is well away, as you can see from the little animals she has made.
Watch this space for more crafty developments!
