Felting fun

I’ve bought quite a lot of wool last year in hope to embrace the art of felting a bit more seriously. The hope is still there. The wool too. So far I only made this little attempt (a few months ago…) to try my felting needles

And then recently I moved on to wet felting :

I also made flower brooches

A couple more of my flowers are displayed in my shop.

The inspiring image for the brooches was

Definitely will play more with wool. I have quite a few Japanese magazines/books with lots of exciting woolly ideas to try out and then there are people like Fadeeva. Her creations are simply amazing. Actually, she was the one that made me wanna get some felting needles and try to learn to control them. Love her stuff! Also love HUT up. And kjoo.
For those who are interested I bought my merino tops from this great shop.

So that’s wool. In a mean time I’m back to what I’m feeling better at – making some more mohair bears… and rabbits. And…

Hope you’re enjoying your week! Will ketch up soon. x

  • Love the little penguin…those Japanese craft books are very inspiring, aren’t they? I love felting too, but with a one year old to chase around, I just haven’t had much time for it lately. (Not to mention, I have to keep those killer needles waaaay up high out of her reach!)

    Glad to see you blogging again!

  • Thank you Stacey!
    My littlest one was about 16months when I finally decided I can sacrifice a few hours of my sleep time for some joyful crafting… 🙂

  • Hi Mia
    I am in awe of your needle felting and wet felting skills..
    I discovered wet felting last year and became addicted to making slippers for everyone..
    I have bought myself a small rabbit needle felting kit but still haven’t plucked up courage to make the thing yet..
    Your post has inspired me…!!

  • I find felting very therapeutic 🙂 Plus possibilities, what you can do with wool are endless… looking forward seeing your new creations!
