Hi all you experts out there
I got my needle felting beginners kit yesterday - and I immediately thought - YES - I will make a bear - but unfortunately no bear was there
Instead I got Spot - without the aid of tutorial or safety net - here he is - go on he will I hope give you all a little giggle - but for better or worse he is definitely my first attempt at needle felting - perhaps my last (I even had the cheek to try and use wiring in his legs and tail )
I will run away now and come back later to hear what you think
W0000 H00000 Anne
Fantabulous! How wonderful! There is always rom in this world for one more spot.....AND ESPECIALLY a cutie like yours!
are you hooked???
I am... just ordered 1/2 pound in each of three colors for teddy faces.
I love what you did and am proud of you for trying it. you made me laugh when you said
I even had the cheek to try and use wiring in his legs and tail
Cheek? Honey I think that was genius!
What a great first job! And what's next on your plate? You didn't complain about how many times you stuck yourself, SO I think you are hooked. I hope so anyway because you're a natural.
Anne, you did a very very nice job on Spot. You should be proud of yourself! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: Making anything for the first time can be full of "unknowns"....now you will be even more comfortable on your next one...and the one after that, and the one after that, and the one after that............... :dance:
Ladies you are so kind :hug: :hug:
Sue Ann - might be a little while for the next - I am now going to try and find some answers to questions :doh:
Patsy - thank you very much
Kim - - well lets see pleeese I am delighted you think well of little spot
Dilu - you are soo sweet - I only stuck my finger three times - the first time I swore and then was a bit more careful - cos it hurt What is next - well now I have to finish a bear so I can add needle felt bits to it - but tomorrow I have to clean the house etc as it is new years eve - (oh just n case you think I am really a slob I do clean more than once a year just I have to make sure it is good that night so it has a better chance of never getting out of hand for the next year)
Thanks Judi - there are as you say so many unknowns - including by the way the absolutely strange and vacant looks I got from many shop -book and art - assistants today when I went on a search for a book ( I am soo impatient I thought maybe I might find one locally - huh fat chance - Glasgow has not heard of needle felting yet - infact british publishers do not seem to have heard of it )
Marie - thank you I look forward to seeing your cats
but tomorrow I have to clean the house etc as it is new years eve
OK so you clean other times too, but that was really pretty cute, and I could related totally....When I am hot to finish a project everything goes by the wayside.....And there have been times when I forget to eat, and get scolded....and don't answer the phone because it is a nusisance, and......
I hate it when you are nearly done with a major project and real life decides to butt in.
But hopefully you have got the bug and will keep it up.....
Told Ya you could do it Anne
this needle felting is sooo easy to do - the hard part is getting the felt to look like anything ha ha ha but i think your first little doggy is fabulous Anne well done and i expect to see more animals from you this year.
Happy New Year Anne
Thank you so much glad you like the little guy
Dilu - Oh and I thought it was only me who got immersed in things - sometimes it is only when I develope a headache through lack of eating that I remember to eat - or I can even find myself working tilll 3.00 am in the morning just to finish something- nice to know I am not alone :hug:
Heather - I have lots of colours of wool so who knows what will come out next
Eileen - I do look forward to seeing your little piggy - or will that be three??
Louise - you are too kind :hug:
Karen - thank you for you kind words
Penny - Happy New year too - I will see what I can do a little later in January - maybe a ..............no I will wait and see waht climbs out of the wool
Aww, wonderful doggy, Anne! He's crammed full of personality and so so cute! Well done - I can't believe he's your first needle felted creation....are you sure you haven't been secretly practicing??! Seriously, as someone else said, you're a natural and I'm looking forward to seeing your next creation!
PS Sorry I didn't notice him before now...I've only been popping in and out of the discussion forum this past week or so. But normal service will resume shortly and I'll have more time to play here! Yay!
