Hello again! Let’s continue with the pokings. I only have a few left so this shouldn’t be too long for ya.
After the “felt-tarium”, I was looking on Amazon.com for needle felting books and I found the most perfect book. It had the cutest cover of a bear sitting by a campfire. I just knew I had to make this happen. But I ran into a little problem. The book hasn’t even been released yet. The book is called Wee Felt Worlds by Amanda Carestio. So after pre-ordering the book, I decided to give it a go and felt a bear and campfire without the help from the book.
After the bear, I had no idea what to do next. Then my husband had the best idea. He grabbed one of my stitchings off the fridge and said “You should felt this!” I never would have thought to use an embroidery pattern for a felting. My husband is a genius but don’t tell him I said that.
Here’s a comparison of the stitching and the felting.
And here ‘s a close up of the felting. Things aren’t always what they seem. The box alone was probably the hardest thing I’ve crafted. When everything was finished, the finished product was more than I could have asked for.
So now that I have the genius idea of using embroidery patterns for feltings, I feel that I have endless options now. The next thing I did was search the Urban Threads pattern library for my next felting. I found the perfect one…
That’s it guys. That’s all what I’ve poked so far and I hope you enjoyed seeing them.
