* needle felting

Posted on January 14th, 2004 by maitreya. Filed under Felting.


I got an Earthsong Fibers needle felting set for Christmas and only just tonight got around to trying it. Essentially, you have this evil sharp, barbed needle that you jab into a piece of wool fleece over and over and over again until it all gets stuck together. It’s kind of magic. I’m trying to make a leaf as part of an eventual flower (ala Supermaggie). I didn’t think it was working at first, but it did come together eventually. I’m still not too happy with it. It doesn’t seem as solid as an actual piece of felt. I think I might try some soap and hot water on it to see what that does. The set also came with some pieces of felt in very pretty plant-dyed colors. Apparently, another use of the needle is to kind of applique pieces of felt together without any seams. Maybe I’ll try that later.
