I've noticed a few different places talking about needle felting lately such as Gingerbread Snowflakes. So I got a little kit to try it for myself.
Here's what is in the kit:
*White felt with design
*Seafoam & Dark Aqua roving
*Two felting needles
*Purple wool yarn
*White cotton thread
I watched a video from Living Felt to see how it was done. It is pretty easy and quick.
Here's how the piece looked after both colors are in
Here is what the back looks like with some of the fibers coming through.
And here is the finished product with the embroidery detail. (I also learned how to make a stem stitch and Finally made a French Knot). I don't know what I'll do with this piece yet but it was fun learning how to make it; adding another skill to my repertoire.
