I’ve wanted to try this for ages! And I admit I was frustrated at first because my creations weren’t as good as I wanted. Duh! The two owls were my first try at animals, then the bunny which I think is OK but a bit square!
I’ve been doing first aid training for work this week for three days and was exhausted! Which may also be the reason I stabbed myself with this felting pen – major ouch!! I could practice my skills on myself!
I picked the pen up at Fred Aldus and was delighted when my gorgeous wool and pretty eyes arrived from Etsy – by Gretel Parker they are just so cute. The pen has three needles and makes it easier to felt things into shape. I use single needles for smaller areas, but you can take needles out of the pen.
Looking up needle felting creatures online I saw some zombies which inspired my green creature and then the orange one! Not sure what happened to his mouth…. I might try doing details with embroidery floss next.
I really recommend needle felting if you love crafts, it is really fun and you can make pretty much anything 🙂
