trying my hand at needle felting



I got myself some felting supplies long ago,
but you know how you'll have that project sitting in the box...
waiting patiently till you're ready...
and so it did for about a year.
until now!
I finally tried felting!
how therapeutic it is!
jab jab jab jab.

a little patch for somewhere...





tried a head, which turned into a doll.
strange lookin thing!



Attie likes her tho!
thats all that counts.

jab jab.

I have been wanting to try needle felting for a long time. You did really well for a first try! Do you think your swap items might have something to do with needle felting? Because I love your doll!
By the way, I am organising a raffle in aid of the Japan earthquake on my blog. Who knows, you might be interested. It's on www.tintinnabuleuse.blogspot.com

Needle felting can be very therapeutic, as long as you don't jab a finger- OUCH! What wonderful first projects!
