Yesterday I decided to try needle felting some of the Tunis wool I’ve been washing. I’ve heard that it is very easy….you just have to stab the wool repeatedly with a sharp “felting” needle. I put my wool in a cookie cutter and felted it into the shape I wanted that way. Then I tea-dyed my little felted sheep. You can find very simple tea-staining instructions here: http://sheepyhollow.wordpress.com/2010/02/02/tea-dyeing/. I dyed this one dark so it would look like a gingerbread cookie.
I also tried making a 3-D felted object, too. So far I just made 1 little egg, but I want to make a bunch and dye them pretty colors for Easter. I’ll post pictures of them later.
Yeah! Great job needle felting! Just think of all the possibilities…
nice job! love the sheep – very country 🙂
