More Needle Felting-----December 2020


     2020 Needle Felting

This is a Nativity set I felted for a friend 

for Christmas.

I hadn't seen her for a long time because 

we had moved and there was surgery and 

COVID and some other circumstances.



I thought it turned out very sweet. She 

loved it. The felt just seems to fit it and is 

soft and gives a feeling of warmth. 



I made another set of the three main characters

with 2 spools I had left and I crocheted the baby 

basket from dark hemp instead of the light in 

the other photo. The larger sheep's legs in the 

first set are made from natural wood golf tees. 

The eyes are small headed black pins and the 

head covering and blanket are woven fabric 

frayed at the edges.

These little characters I made were transformed into bookmarks for the grandchildren. I remade the orange 

cat that I felt like didn't work. I replaced it with a little boy head, I think.
In the back is a lion who was quite cute but doesn't show up well in the photo. 

I sewed a ribbon to each which you lay inside the book with the animal/object on top of the pages.
