1  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Storing Felting Needles on: January 09, 2014 06:43:49 PM
This is my new way to store needles. I bought spice jars from the dollar store and stuffed a bit of wool at the bottom and a little paper with the needle size written. Then poked each needle through the holes.
With the tops on they don't budge and won't fall out which is the problem I had with using cardboard. It is a great way to bring needles places also.

I had a bit of a break from felting over the last month. Not really chosen but we just bought a bus and I travelled 900km to get it and then drove it back home and we are now starting to work on it to transform it into our home.

I had started this one in June and then he stayed uncompleted for a while but I finally came around to taking the time to finish him last week.

If you do not know Cthulhu he comes from the imagination and stories of H.P. Lovecraft...

He is about 6 inches high...

Yes, needle felting takes a lot of work and a lot of pokes. A big reason why they are so expensive to buy as a craft.  The best way to make it easier is to get comfortable. Find the right hight to work on, find a chair with arm rests and ignore the lopsided extra muscles forming Wink

Mine were squishy at first and like you said it was not about time...

Try using a bigger needle to do the core, the bigger the needle (lower gauge) the less pokes you will need to do to compact the fibres. The more compact the fibres are the less they will shift when manipulated and the shape will stay consistant with handling. You really want ther to be very little give when you poke it so that it will keep its shape. it will also make it easier to get less fuzzies Smiley  hope that helps....
9  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Dragon Set with Princess, Prince and Treasure... on: May 27, 2013 01:54:08 PM
This Dragon could be a friend or a foe and the girl and boy are simple but could easily be children from a nearby village or could be a princess and a prince. They all have gold to share with a treasure chest that fits perfectly in the dragons paws. What adventures could be in store for them? Only imagination will tell....

The people are 3 inches tall and the dragon is 5 inches tall.

Thanks for looking!

I am learning more with each creation. Techniques, what work and what doesn't. I am self taught and started just a few month ago but I am having so much fun.

This is my newest creation...

The house, with the roof on, is 12 inches tall and the diameter of the mushroom stem is 7-8 inches wide. The door and window both open and there is a wire frame deep in the core of the house above the door and around the bottom to help keep its shape. The door knob is a button that has been securely sewed on and then secured agin with more wool. Besides those three elements, the entire house is made of wool.

Below the window there is a cute little flower box and there are small mushrooms growing out of the grass around the base with vines spanning the walls.

This is the perfect size for the creature that I make..

Thanks for looking!
