Look what I did!
It's called Needle Felting.
You start with Roving (unspun wool) and really fine SHARP felting needles. You use something for a pattern or outline and start punching the needle in-out-in-out until the roving begins to "felt". When you are done, you have made unspun wool into a pattern or shape.
First I tried to make a coaster. I used too much roving so it came out pretty thick. But it worked!
The red heart was a last minute idea.
I made a heart stencil and worked it directly onto a jacket that I only wear around the house to keep me warm in our frosty Arizona winters. Today, I tossed it in with the clothes I was washing and it was just fine.
They say you can use wool felt and wool yarn, also. My mind is just going wild with the possibilities. Now I want to get some felting molds and do a few pins and hair clips and figure out something to do on Dear Daughter's clothes.
Let's see. . . what would a 16 year old girl like me to put on her clothes.?.?.?
