I made this a few months ago for a bookmark swap on another forum.  I scanned the piece into the pc, printed it off onto photo paper, and cut it down to a bookmark size.



I used some beads and different yarns to add texture and detail. I was my first needle felted project and I'm very proud of it.  The colours are all hand blended - sadly I don't have any carders so I took small amounts of fibre and mixed them together by hand. 

I want to try and build on this original design and create something bigger.  How big? I don't know yet, but it's inspired me to keep going.

Hope you all like it! Smiley

Thanks!! 

I think if I were going to do a bigger piece, I would make a background or base by wetfelting and then needle the design onto that.  I doubt I'd have the patience to needle felt a whole flat piece just as a base!! Smiley

This is so cute!  It kind of reminds me of the book 'The Last of the Really Great Wangdoodles.     I know, I know, stupid name.  But it has the same sort of whimsy to it.  Now I kinda wanna try some felting, too.   Cheesy

The colors are lovely and the swril in the sky is beautiful with the beading.
