It's just so FABO teachart. How did you do the felting part...I mean the layout of the felt (I know how to jab my self with tiny barbed needles). Is it on a felt bat, or is it on silk? Did you just lay the different colored hanks down in a random way, or did you sketch it out first? Does having one giant eyeball for a head help or hurt when needle felting? I so want to make one like it. And just so ya know, when I saw it in the recent with pictures, I thought, "That looks like E made it". I love being right
I love being able to recognize people's crafts from the thumb nails too! Makes me feel important
I felted this onto a piece of plain white cotton and it worked just fine. I had a rough sketch of the monster shapes on the fabric that I drew on with a disappearing embroidery ink pen- but really the felting covered up all the marks so even sketching with a pencil would be fine. I used wool roving that I picked up at Michael's (with a handy-dandy 50% off coupon, of course!) and blended a few colors together to add a little interest to the monsters. I have one of those boar bristle brushes to felt on- I've liked the way it works so far- but I know some people like felting on foam pads, I've just never tried that.
Having one giant eyeball definitely helps in my case
(I should totally make that my avatar...) And you know you have a package from me coming in the not too distant future (hint: I started felting something for you the moment you liked these guys in the personal swap gallery
