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!!!!

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?

I've been trying to make animals.

hm, ok.  3d needle felting can be tricky to do at first...you want to make sure that you don't stab one part of your roving totally flat (which is not hard to do if you're not careful.)  i wish i could put it into words how i do it when i sculpt a critter, but it's difficult sometimes.

spillyjane, I've never done any needle felting...so this might be a silly question.  How do you keep all the various pieces together?  Are they glued together?

they're not glued, they're all felted together.  glue might make the piece more secure, though...but i've never tried it.

i think you'd be best sticking with needling them together spillyjane. i'm thinking the roving might be too porous for glue, and it would weigh the wool down.

yeah, i suspect you're right.  i would be leary of applying any type of liquid to a needle felted piece.

the banana and the dish are somewhat fluffier than the other pieces that i do, yes.  i think it adds to the oddness of making food out of wool--you can't mistake it for plastic or clay or anything else.  the birds that i make are much more tightly felted.

First the yummy burger, now desert... oh spillyjane you create tempting soft sculptures.  The lightness lets one know this is a calorie free treat.  Unless it leads one to craving "the real thing"  Wink

Don't you love how you have control with needle felting on when to say "it is finished".  My work tends to be very dense,  but then it is intended for function and daily use (hats, seat cushions, etc) touching and bumping and squishing.  The lightness in this piece and in pearsonchick's moomin are intriguing and give a fairy tale essence.   The cream swirls are particularly lovely- they look so light, yet are not squished off shape by the delectable cherries.  Those stems are fab!  How did you get them to stay to stiff yet so thin?

Thanks for sharing this beautiful  piece.

Hi Jane, In my mind, I do see your work highlighted in a diaorama or tableau; a scene in a shadowbox.  A glorious mixed media art piece.  Each one you have shared  is tiny, lovely, intricate on it's own.  But yes, I can see you developing a major work.   A tree branch with birds.  A coffee bar/ deli with "Barbie" customers and baristas.  Whether you stick with one offs or put them into a large piece, it will always be great seeing your next creation.  Thanks for sharing.

oh wow, thanks!  and thanks so much for your inspirational words!  you've got me thinking now... Smiley
