Well I went to the Brighton Show on Friday and despite my best efforts to restrain myself from buying new stash and investigating new crafts I ended up with a pile of new stash and a new craft to try out. You guessed it I bought a Needle Felting Kit! In fairness I have looked at this craft before but always thought it looked a bit complicated and time consuming, but the demonstrators made it look fairly easy and were more than happy to answer my many many questions.
The kit I bought enabled me to make keyrings. Now don't ask me why, but I got it into my head that I didn't want to make the keyring that I had instructions for but wanted to make an owl for my bag! So I had a google and found this video on youtube and a couple of other tutorials that convinced me it was do-able and off I went.
This is the end result, not too bad for a first ever attempt. I know it's far from perfect, but the great thing is I know what I did wrong and have started to get a feel for how the fibre works, so hopefully my next project will be much better.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
