* needle felted decoration

Posted on May 10th, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Felting.

I needle-felted some of my dyed roving onto my felted change purse. I’m still getting the hang of the needle felting, so a simple shape seemed best. I stuffed the purse full of polyfill so it wouldn’t felt shut. There’s another dot on the other side.

    I love your blog! I love the scientific feel of your Kool Aid dying and the change purse is very hip. One day I will work up the courage to felt. I have the supplies, but it just seems intimidating although I love the final product.

    Love the kool-aid dye setup – looks just like the lab. I didn’t know you were a crafty type too! We should knit together sometime.

    I love your little purse with dot. Isn’t kool-aid dyeing a hoot! I am TRYING to find out where to buy some of the Japanese felting books, including the one that inspired your little purse; but getting really frustrated. Any suggestions?

    I’ve been working with wool for many, many years – doing applique, now some dry needle felting and ready to do the “wet” stuff!!
