Needle Felting


I think I mentioned that I received a (dry) Needle felting kit from Rita the other day.
What I didn’t say was that I have never actually seen needle felting “in the flesh”;
I’ve only seen pics on the Web,and I do have troubles conceptualising the HOW of new tecniques.
So,despite the fact that I haven’t shown you whatis the kit I present my first attempts.
Because I wanted to produce a tree for a particular project that’s what I started with!
The choice of dark brown felt sheeting for the background was nota good idea,but I thought a non woven background fabric maight be helpful.

Then I thought that a chunky abstract piece might be a better/easier idea
