Felt Ahoy!

29 Dec

I’ve so much to share with you from the festive period but to start with, I wanted to unveil a quick little project which I’ve just completed.

I’ve been dying to further explore the world of needle-felting after having learnt the basics in a workshop a month or so ago. I incorporated the skills into one of my recent commissions, and have begun to see so many possible applications for felting in my work. I’ve always had a love of illustration, and a hefty collection of children’s picture books, but have never had the drawing skills to match what I see in my head. I’ve realised that needle-felting can be used as a medium for illustration, so this evening I decided to have a go. Within half an hour I’d managed to create a little image that I’m actually quite proud of.

Felted Illustration

Lots of potential for improvement and for broadening my scope, but for now, I’m happy with this little chap!

    I’ve had the same experience – can’t draw to save myself but give me some needles and some fabrics & I can get things to look half decent! Hope you continue to enjoy.
