I ran into a strange little woman at a market on Saturday who was selling felted hats and wraps and stuff.  We got talking and she told me about a felting workshop that was happening on Sunday.  I thought I'd go along for a few hours and learn the basic ropes.  I ended up being there, working hard, for about six hours.  I am so proud of what I made! 



I'm going to make it into a cushion cover and only just remembered to take a photo of it after I cut it and was about to start sewing!

I'd love your opinions, o wise felters, good and bad!

I think it looks good!
From what I can tell, you've got even thickness in the felt with no holes and it looks strongly felted for your purpose. It makes me happy to think that you're putting your felt in a place that easily seen and loved  Smiley

Thanks for the positive feedback everyone!  I think I had a really good teacher which helps!!  I'm really chuffed with myself and will be doing more in the future.

Gotta love the strange little women who introduce you to wonderful new hobbies!!! Hehe!! Needlefelting is so addicting and I'm happy to see you joined in the fun! Have you made anything else since this???

As for this specific piece, I like the colors and the abstract-ness of it! Looks like fun!
