First attempt at needle felting

First attempt at Needle felting all done.......




1) Leaf brooch/pin. Needle felted leaf up of the needle felted background, felt backing, embroidered veins and a steel safety pin with a blanket stitch edge.


2) Sparkly Love Tree. This design evolved as I went along but it is a lovely finished piece made from the needle felted background, sequins, seed beads, button (tiny red heart), felt backing and a steel safety pin with a blanket stitch edge. It has to be said that i'm really quite proud of this!

Also made this cute little fella - I hereby call him Sybill!  The gentle ginger moggy hanging decoration which no home should be without!

Anywho, night night all.................... more stitching antics tomorrow!
