a burger that's unusually high in fibre.
needle felted from Corriedale wool
on a glass bead sesame seed bun.
1" high and 1.5" high.

i think it's more than a little clear
that i have way too much free time.
...and that i should stop buying so much roving.
----------------------
needle felted banana split


this needle felted banana split is made from
100% Corriedale wool and stands 2" tall and 2" long.
you'll notice that there are three different flavours
of ice cream--chocolate, vanilla and strawberry--and
that each is topped with a different topping--strawberry,
butterscotch and cherry.  each scoop of ice cream is
finished off with a generous helping of whipped cream
topped with a teeny tiny cherry!  more info is available
in my journal...yummy![/center]
--------------------------
Sushi platter
fresh from the jane-brain:



the needle felted sushi platter measures 2.5" long, 1.5" wide and .5" high.
it features tiny needle felted kappa maki, california roll and ebi sushi
displayed on a tray completet with pickeled ginger, wasabi and sushi grass.
this piece is made of 100% corriedale wool.

the needle felted sushi platter from the side:

well, i suppose it's just an interesting object in its own right...it doesn't have to actually "do" anything other than just be cute or just "be," just like any other sculpture or miniature object.

spillyjane, you've done it again.  Another lovely creation!!  Shocked                   

You have put a serious hurt on me to want to learn needlefelting!!  But, I've promised myself I wouldn't buy any new craft kits/supplies until I get finished with the plant/garden swap I'm in now.

I squealed out loud when I saw the sesame seeds (I'm so glad my co-workers are used to that from me!).  Another fabulous creation!!!!

I have been trying needle felting and have a hard time getting it to go into the shape I want. Do you have any tips? And the burger is so cute!

sometimes it's easier if you try to shape your roving into a rough shape of the object you're trying to make before you actually start stabbing.  are you trying to felt a 3d object of a flat piece?
