ATTEMPT AT NEEDLE FELTING. A LITTLE ROBIN.


I have never done needle felting before but I thought I would have a go.

This is my attempt.






                                You have a brush and a holder with needles in.






                          First I cut out of normal felt the shape of the robin.
                          And placed on  the brush. Then I put the colours I wanted to add
                          on top. Then pushing down with the needle through the felt to the brush
                          it attaches the colours to the base felt. EASY!








                        I made two matching sides. And then added a bead for the eyes.



                            Then I sewed both sides togeather.
                            And added stuffing.  



 
I made the wings and beak and sewed them in place.
                                       Next I made the legs out of a orange pipe cleaner.           



                                                My first needle felt Robin.



                                                       Has any of you done needle felting?.
                                                       Would love to hear.

  10. I had no idea that's all there was to felting! Your robin turned out GREAT. I'd never know it was your first felting project. Love him. You should hang him in a window with some fishing line.

  11. There is probably more to it Pammy Sue but that is as far as I know so far. Yes would look great hanging in the window.
