Needle Felting

11th June 2013

Good morning to everyone following my blog! Sad to say it is raining today but I am not complaining as we have had 10 lovely days.

I apologise for the quality of the photos-wish my very talented daughter lived nearer to help!!

A few weeks ago I bought a needle felting tool at a craft show, sent off for some beautiful merino fleece and played. I found this process to be very relaxing and quite addictive!

I now have numerous pieces of decorated felt and today decided  to do something with them. 

I made some brooches which I embellished with tiny beads and some 'fabric' I had made using saved off-cuts of thread and soluble fabric. I had some brooch backs and stitched them on, I think these would look good on a garment, hat or bag. More items for my craft stall.

Next I made covers for a book and ring binder file.

I used free machining on the large flower on the file and programmed stitches on the smaller book.
A very satisfying morning.
