I attempted my first 'feltie' a while ago with a beginners needle felting kit I bought, and have since made a few more little creations, which are getting progressively smaller*!
*(This is mostly due to the fact that I only have a needle-holder that holds a single needle, so you can imagine how long even a tiny creature takes to create with a bazillion stabs needed- the smaller the easier!)
…Also, the size of them adds to the cuteness of course...
For my sisters Birthdays, I wanted to make them personalised gifts while I had some free time.
I made them each a mini feltie (one a stripy cat, the other a little Totoro) in hand-drawn paper maché boxes:
For Birthday cards, I photographed the felties in the garden so they appear to be in their own little habitat:
I'd like to try creating felted jewellery next time, or at least felted pieces that have a bit more purpose than just to be a cute ornament…watch this space!
