This is the first time I've needle-felted anything, and I'm quite proud of it! I jotted down the mushroom on a piece of paper first to get an idea of the shape, but the hedgehog and flowers were all done as I went. I made it on a piece of red commercial felt. The inside is "sealed" with a layer of fabric mod podge. I had quite a battle with the ball clasp as I'd never tried installing one before (hence the dings and glue stains) . Lesson learned: it's better to make the piece larger than the frame rather than the same size as it shrinks during felting. Enough said, on to the pictures!




Question: how do you remove your finished item without destroying the foam mat?

Thanks for looking, C & C appreciated!

 Very Cute! I've never tried needlefelting before either. I can imagine how hard installing the frame can be, but your design is adorable!

Oh that's so cute!  When needle felting you need to occasionally lift up the piece from the mat to make sure it doesn't get permanently attached. Just get in the habit of sliding  your fingers under the piece every few minutes and it will save you from lots of trouble and crumbling mats in the future!
