I'VE NEEDLE FELTED FOR 10 YEARS

Here are the most recent 20 of the 902 pincushions I needle felted from wool roving. They are sculpted with a special barbed needle from raw wool and  attached to a golf tee. They are designed to slip down inside of a spool of thread for easy access to pins and needles.
The very first ones were in December 2007, were given  to Collette, Ann, Charla, Diane, Karey, LeNea, Birgid, Linda, Carol, Amber, Mary Jane, Maxine, and Laurie.

Felted Nativities






I've been creating nativity figures on wooden spools.  I did make Mary on a peg doll form to make her a little slimmer. I made two sets. They are sculpted from raw wool with special needles. The wool becomes meshed into a solid form as the fibers interlock. That is the wonder of needle felting..

Zipper Pouches


I had seen these cute candy zipper bags and I wanted to make them. I ended up making 10 for my grandchildren for Christmas. We packed them with a gift card for a book and some candy. I then made 15 more from fabric for gifts and plan to put gift cards in them along with homemade lotion bars and a Kind Bar. We'll see what fits!
I watched YouTube videos from Missouri Star Quilts to learn just how to make them. I ordered a lot of zippers from Amazon and I used fabric from my stash as well as scraps of all my projects kept in my two plastic tubs.
