Excellent!

It's eggs I want to make, and I even bought a wooden one when I ran across it, thinking of wet felting over it, but I haven't had the nerve to try -- afraid to waste roving.  Thank you for saying it can work!

Hello again,

Just the bi-annual check-in to ask:  Anyone have new tips I should add?   

(yeah, i know it's weird to visit an old post this way, but the Views number keeps going up, so I figure this is the one post I've done that may actually Be HELPFUL -- it's very exciting to me!)

Hi,

I've been dabbling in needle felting for a bit, and last night ran into a new problem: What do you do when you want to make a hollow form?  I tried styrofoam, but it was a poor solution!  Killed the needles, left bits in the felt, and the felt was a bear to get off the ball.

Advice please?

Thanks

I did kill one sewing machine.  It was a Kenmore from the 70's that I paid $10 for.  But it's replacement, a $40 Necchi Mira I found on Craigslist could totally handle it.  It's from 1953 and I love it so much. 
Older sewing machines are so much better than the new ones and I could go on and on about that and it gets boring after awhile...probably. 

But it is so true! My mom's machine is an Elna from the 50s, and it is a tank. The foot is almost the only plastic on it, it weighs a ton, but it has sewn all kinds of things -- and survived a scalding water flood -- with nary a problem.

 Shocked  Wow! Awesome!

How did you do it without it killing your sewing machine?

Beautiful! Is the design your own?  What size beads did you use?
