Needlefelted Animals

Yesterday I hosted a needlefelted animals workshop here on the farm.  I have been wanting to learn felting since receiving an exact replica of Jenna from a partner in a craft swap last summer.  I contacted an instructor who lives about an hour away and she offered to come up to teach a workshop for me and my friends.   We had a lovely time.  The instructor had never done a workshop in someone’s home before and said she’d enjoy doing it again.  Everyone got to work on the animal of their choice;  cats, a dachshund, a bunny and a sheep.  Everything in the photo was felted during the class except the 3rd one from the left which was brought by our instructor (and left for me – yay!).  All are WIPs with more details to be finished at home.  One of the most awesome things was everyone received a basic kit and the instructor brought felting supplies for purchase.  These are very hard to come by, particularly around here.  It was lovely to be able to handle the roving instead of viewing it on an internet site.  I bought ten different colors.  No clue what I’ll make next but I’ve got the basics down and am inspired.  Thanks so much to Paige for coming up, you can check out her work at http://www.lulugroove.com
