I love needle felting!

Last Saturday, my sweetie and I took a needle felting class at the UO Craft Center and we both loved it! For those of you who haven’t read my post on the Glass Sampler class, the Craft Center is a wonderful place where super nice people teach you how to make wonderful things!

Needle felting is a lot of fun and it’s very easy to learn the basics. No one in my class had done it before and everyone’s projects looked amazing!

These are just a couple of practice pieces. I started out forming some red wool into a ball, then decided to turn it into an apple. Then I made a rather hairy looking sandwich (maybe not so amazing) to go with it. In order to make the sandwich less hairy and more appetizing, I will need to pack the wool tighter, but that seems to be more difficult with flat shapes like the sandwich, and easier with rounder shapes, like the apple.

This kitty was my main project for the day. Her name is Princess, and she even has her own royal blue kitty bed! I can’t wait to make more cute things with needle felting. I already have lots of ideas for dolls! Of course, as always I have lots of ideas and not much time to work on them. I’m in the middle of about four projects right now that I hope to be able to show you soon!
