I was introduced to needle felting about 4 years ago and seriously considered starting a business based on those creations alone. The timing was wrong. I got back into drawing and mixed-media/painting eventually and the felted goodness has been stored high up in boxes ever since.
One piece I really enjoyed working on as well as the final result (the two don't necessarily go hand in hand, you see) is this flower piece. It's about 6" long and 4" wide at the widest parts. It started as a random layering of wet felt roving, and then i shaped the flower and added coloured wisps over top. Once it was dry I started embellishing it with coloured floss, moving along as it developed depth and definition here or there, and this is what I ended up with. .
My point? I loved working on these, then. I have a tonne of supplies and more to share if anyone is interested in seeing them. I didn't think I would ever go back to them for many reasons, but I find, today, a feeling that maybe I should go back to making a few smaller versions for headbands and winter jackets and see what comes of it. I do love felting and stitching. Who knows - I'll throw it on my to-do list!
Thoughts on felting? Have you tried it?
