Felting – The Beginning

6 Apr

I had a thought that my next project should be a mobile to hang over the baby’s cot as I can’t find one that stands out as special in any way.  As I have never tried felting before and it seems to be a craft that keeps popping up lately, I thought I’d give it a go.  Straight onto eBay I went to get a basic starter kit and have been waiting patiently for it to arrive.  Today was the day.  I watched a quick YouTube video on “how to” then away I went.

With all the materials I needed in front of me I made this little bird along with nest, obviously still feeling quite Eastery.  It took me about 20 minutes, it’s surprising how you forget what a bird looks like when it actually comes to it.  It was quite difficult to create the shape but I’m sure with practise this will improve (any tips are welcome).
