Thought I would share a quick crafty type post with you today.
I have already blogged about how much I love Crafty Creatives, I thought I would share a couple of the things I have so far made from box 7.
Firstly the owl necklace I made in this post. I wear it often and people have commented on it, I have to hide it from my daughter also.
Secondly I have actually done some needle felting which I am so proud of.
|This is the kit from the box.|
As you can see from this picture the wool is on a foam block, the density of florists oasis. This is so the needle has something soft enough to poke in to, but not too soft so it crumbles and doesn't hold up to the needle tip itself. You can also see the fibres of the wool have matted together to make a sturdy quite thick leaf.
After having finished, you then wash it in some hot water and pound it against a counter for a while, just to make it more compact, think woollen sweater in too hot a wash. Then a final cold rinse and leave it somewhere flat to dry.
I now have a leaf, and I'm not sure what to make with it, either to go on a headband or to make a wrist wrap type thing with it. I will update when I've completely finished.
What would needle felt? How would you use the Oak Leaf?
