Needle Felting

I have been very curious about needle felting for about a year. A few weeks ago, I finally picked up a book at the local library and ordered some materials. These are my first three little creatures I created.

It took me a long time to create each one, but was fun. I feel I can get addicted to needle felting.

Sheep: 4" (L) x 2" (W) x 3.5" (H)



Lion: 4.5" (L (including tail) x 2" (W) x 2.5" (H)



Tuxedo Cat: 7" (L (including tail) x 2" (W) x 5" (H)

Akiko, these are wonderful! I love the sheep - so sweet. My friend and her daughter took a felting class and afterwards showed me what they had made; it's a fascinating art.

Wow Wow Wow!!! That is amazing Akiko :) I like them all but I like the lion best with how you mixed the colors. You are multi-talented.

All 3 of these are absolutely precious and have so much personality! I especially like the sheep. Never heard of Needle Felting but it looks extremely difficult. Bet you can sell these as quick as you make them, you talented girl you. ;)

Akiko - these are delightful!!! Isn't it fun to try something different once in a while. In your usual fashion, you have mastered the art of Needle Felting with your first attempt. They are all gorgeous - I couldn't pick a favourite :)

Linda said...

Yes needlefelting another art to try, you certainly have the gift for it, and sound as if you are thoroughly enjoying it.
They are gorgeous.

OMG, these are so cute, Akiko!

Very good especially since you're just learning for the first time too!

I never heard of needle felting until now!

You have really done well with the needle felting. I bought some supplies a while back and did one little one but haven't picked it up again. It was fun.

You've done a beautiful job with these little felt animals. I know of only one other person who does this sort of thing. She loves it and does beautiful work. Keep practicing. You certainly have the knack.
