I've Learned How to Needle Felt!




Something I have wanted to learn for quite some time, is needle felting.  Of course it will be a while (or never) until I can figure out how to do the adorable little mice, foxes and dogs I see on Etsy, but I saw no reason why I couldn't at least figure out how to do some flowers, and bird nests (thank you, You Tube). Here are a couple of the nests I have put together, using 100 % Gotland wool, some angelina fiber,  shimmery strings, feathers and more.  I had these cute little paper mache birds just sitting around, and since they are the perfect size for the nests,  Taa-Daa! They now have a home.   Painted in a shimmery pearlescent paint, and subtle glitter on the wings,  I think they are such a compliment to the nests!  More to follow, and along with these, will be available in my Etsy shop.

Your needle felting nest is adorable as well as the occupant! I admire you for stepping outside your comfort zone.

Oh My Carol...these are just beautiful. Got all that felting stuff; you've inspired me to get it out and have a play.
Kind Regards
