Or maybe the title should be “Stabbed Sunday” because today I used a sharp implement, and I always manage to puncture myself when I’m around sharp things!
Today’s technique is needle felting. That photo is not really fuzzy . . . the subject was fuzzy!
OK, does this look better? This is about half way in my afternoon with wool and a felting needle. Felting needles have barbed, triangle shaped tips and you use them to stab into wool roving so that the fibers attach to a surface and/or to each other. They are very sharp!
I’ve used felting needles to attach or style doll’s hair and earlier this year, my doll club had a felting session where I made this pseudo-pug. But today was my first serious attempt at felting onto another piece of fabric.
After I completed the flower, I made a couple of wool beads.
And, yes, I stabbed myself. Several times. But I didn’t draw blood! At least not today and that makes it a good day!
