I have discovered felting! I had heard about wet felting (but had never tried it) but then I saw needle felting on one of Kirstie Allsopp’s craft programmes. I could do that, I thought, then promptly forgot about it. Then a couple of months ago at a ladies craft group I support through work, the women were felting both wet and with needles. My interest peaked again but then fizzled out with life as a busy working/studying mum
Then I found Art of Felting on Facebook and it blew my mind. Check it out, seriously you will gasp at how realistic some of the felted animals are! Suddenly inspired I bought a felting kit, extra needles and wool rovings from Ebay.
These are my creations so far, they aren’t fantastic pieces but I am only practising.

I am hoping to perfect my new found, ahem, talent and have bought a cheap book to show me how to create some felt items more professionally. You may see a lot more posts like this as I practice with my kit.
