Well ordered a book on how it is all done after seeing all the wonderful creations on here and getting green with envy, but couldn't wait for the book to arrive ( still waiting with itchy fingers )
so this is my first trial, lets see what happens bear when we play with felting .... i had a few blood spurts !!!!! wow those things are sharp and my teddy gets sick at the sight of blood, as you can see he does not look very well ..
But now we are sitting giggling about it all , and i decided even for a 1st attempt he is super cute enough to leave him the way he is .
Battling to get that lovely finish that i see on all of yours but i suppose i must crawl with bandaged fingers before i can run the gauntlet of needles
You did well for your first attempt.
I only do a tiny bit of felting on my bunny noses and sometimes a bit around the eyes, mainly because I keep stabbing myself. I'm hopeless, my fingers just keep getting in the way. Blood stains on a white bunny, not attractive. Haha.
Keep up the good work.
Hi Ja'mir I found youtube a great resource to help with my felting in particular
these tutorials although to make all felted creatures show the principles very well.
