I've been attempting to try needle felting for a long time now. Finally after reading some instructions I found on-line and watching some videos on youtube.com I dived into a Needle Felting project - this cat. My little assistant Monica helps me to display my first needle felted creature.
The cat is 4" tall. First, I made a base for shaping from wool.
It was such a fun to shape the forms and the face. I tried to do my best, I never sculptured the wool.
After I was satisfied with how firm and shaped the body of the cat was, I started covering it with different color of the wool.
Then I added a tail
eyes, nose, whiskers, mouth
and here is the cat done. It took me 8 hours of making my first needle felted toy.
My next step is to try needle felting in miniature.
How did you spend your weekend?
