Hi Lovelies, I pray you are all hanging in there and keeping safe. I want to share with you one of my favourite craft projects.
Here I use felt to create a small, charming landscape picture using felt. If felt is something you have always wanted to do then have a look or read this post.
I feel some of you already know what felt is; however, for those who do not, – Felt is man fabric, woven with wool and natural fibre. The fibre is pressed together using heat, moisture, and a lot of pressure to create it – (Contrado).

Felting for beginners: –
What you will need is a big sponge.
Otherwise get the normal filters sponge from Amazon.
Be careful, this is a dangerous hobby, the needles are very sharp. Many have accidently and continuously pricked themselves
Finger protector for felters
Stiff felt or Pre-Felt
Balls of wool felt.
The colours depend on what you want to make.
You will need this to draw an outline of the image of what you want to create
Prepare and start your felting
First take your stiff felt and draw outline of what you would like to make. Then, – take the sponge and place the hessian on it. Place your stiff or pre- felt on the hessian.
Pull out the colour of wool felt you would like to start needling on to the image. Use your fingers to separate or spread out the wool where you want it. The place it on the image and stick it into place using the felting needle.
Keep doing this until you create the whole image. If you feel some areas have less colour just add on some felt to it.
This is my finished felt picture. What do you think?
