This is my first stab at Needle felting, and I think it turned out pretty well. This project was used for a 3/D Design class final Fall of 2006. With some help of some of you craftsters, I was able to start and finish this project (sorry it has taken me so long to post).

I first took 3 sheets of 1 in. thick Styrofoam and glued them together.
Then I used different knives and blades to shape the Styrofoam into a drill.
I then took a piece of gauged wire and made the drill bit.
After that wrapped the whole thing and needle felted it.
The grayish roving I dyed myself, a first as well.

I remember all the disscussion that went on surrounding ths project
so I'm really glad you came back and posted your result.

I like the concept
something so hard and functional/industrial made out of felt.
Love it  Grin
