Wool and needle pad and needles
These needles are extremely sharp!!!
I followed the felt alive tute for the gnome. I really didn't have enough wool left over to make the arms and hat so I had to fudge it. Probably my fault not theirs, lol.... But for my first try I am relatively pleased. I only stabbed myself once and not very hard so I didn't draw blood. You really have to pay attention to what you are doing. Having ADD disorder makes this not an easy task, lol... The next tute is for mushrooms so I will try those and try to make them tiny. I figured for the first try I better keep to the directions.
From my previous post I showed the beginnings of a doll I was doing with wool called felt wee folk dolls and have that one almost finished, but my faces suck so I probably will leave it blank or just put eyes in.
Of course as you can see I need to make the gnome much smaller in regards to the sitting felt wee folk doll.
I want to play around with whimsical scenes (like fairy and gnome woodland gardens) so hopefully I can come up with something inbetween these two....
Of course the felting will work great for animals.
Thanks for looking.
