Tuesday, 8 April 2008 needle felting.
I was going to post a shop feature tonight but I seem to be having issues accessing my file with the info, so instead I am going to show off my very first needle felted bowl.
First, let me say, holy needle jabs! This baby was one heck of a lot of work!
I made the bowl (the natural colour) with corriedale and I really like the way it works. It is felted tightly but with a bit of spongy softness so that you just want to touch it! The embellishments are made with a combo of merino and other wools. I also played around with needle gauges and star/ triangle points to get a feel for the various tools.
I hadn't planned to make a rowan bowl, but it begged me! I am still uindecided if I will list it or keep it. I really love it.
I am so glad all of my little felties went to a nice shop this past weekend so Andy will stop looking at me with that 'you should be painting something' look when I felt instead of work on new clothing designs!
The bowl is approximately 2" high and 3" in diameter at the base, 4" at the top.

The embellishments are fantastic! I love the branch and berries. Keep this one - it is too precious to sell.

These are just so lovely, I've never seen anything like before. You should probably keep this one but make lots more.......
