Hello friends! We are on a little felting kick here at our home. In my opinion an easy way to needle felt any shape is to do it on a metal cookie cutter! Especially when starting out.
Aren’t they cute? All these beauties need are a bit of lovely thread and we have new ornaments for our tree, and for gift giving! They make cute embellishments for your wooly items, you just felt the completed shape onto your scarf, hat, sweater, purse etc. They are also beautiful scattered on a holiday table.
Tools For the Trade:
1. Wool Roving
2. Needle Felting Needles
3. Foam Block
4. Metal Cookie Cutter
WOOLPETS on Etsy is very reliable, I have bought and used their products, and have given them as gifts. If you live in the Oak Park, Il. area, they carry a variety of Woolpet’s felting supplies at Geppettos Toy Box. You can easily find supplies online, even Joann carries them. Here in Illinois there is a lovely Fiber Haven called Esther’s Place Fibers in Big Rock, Illinois, about an hour drive from Chicago. They have their own sheep and teach a variety of Fiber Art classes there. The supplies they carry are of fantastic quality and much more affordable for me personally, AND they have a ramp! So it is accessible! Woo Hoo! Love them!
If you are new to felting, my last post provided a link to a Google list of You Tube videos for felting. I will be starting a You Tube Channel in the New Year, so stay tuned! But for now HERE is a link to a You Tube demo on felting in cookie cutters. I hope you enjoy the process, feel free to contact me with any questions. Happy Felting!
