White rabbit

Our next needle felting project is to make the white rabbit. We made a start on Thursday, so I will keep you posted. My white rabbit I felted was sold before Christmas so we are working from photos in the class.

Here is a photo of the white rabbit I made.

Another busy needle felting class

We have had another lovely felting class with lots of chatter and many beautiful creations being made. The classroom was absolutely full again with all 12 seats taken, meaning no seat for me (not that I would have time to sit down anyway)


It was great fun and everyone is now an expert as far as I’m concerned so it’s time for a new challenge.George needle felted character doll

The bigger projects! I’m not sure if I ever blogged about George but he was my first needle felted character doll that

I made using an online workshop by Kay Petal of Felt Alive. She is one clever lady.

I know some of my ladies are itching to start their bigger projects so I am hoping to teach a few new techniques to help them get started. There is talk of needle felted ET, Dobby from Harry Potter, Minnie Mouse, Rosie and Jim and even Betty Boop. All sounds very interesting and I can’t wait to get started. Now that Anita has got all the supplies into Swanstitch for us we are raring to go. So watch this space and when the photos start appearing, please leave comments and let us know what you think.
