22  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper Christmas wreath on: December 18, 2009 11:27:59 PM
Hi, I'm new to this thread.
But I made a paper wreath for Christmas from this tutorial:

It took me from 3pm til 3am ~ I couldn't stop til I finished it!!  Grin

Thanks for the great feedback.  Grin
Its only palm sized. I think I used either 4mm or 5mm eyes.

My first attempt at a bunny. I'm quite happy at how it turned out.  Smiley

25  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Re: felting needles, foam pads, "finger felting", and fiber on: October 26, 2009 12:19:37 AM
The finest needle I know of is a 42 as well. I found a place where you can get a 40 but with the barbs concentrated at the end of the needle, which is great for detailing.

As mentioned above, move your piece around. If I am needle felting an ear (which is flat) I make sure I peel the ear off often and needle both sides to wrangle the loose fibres. And do work at an angle, but always in and out at the same angle so you don't bend the needle tip.

I always lay a piece of craft felt (one of those squares you get at craft stores) on my foam (mainly to protect the foam pad) but I still get stray fibres in the felt. Its the nature of the art. So just keep peeling your piece off. It will take practice, but you'll get the hang of it.

I often roll roving, but I make sure I roll it as tight as possible. It will be loose, but it just helps the process a little; you will still need to needle felt it quite well.

Try YouTube and search needle felting. Often someone has uploaded a video as a how to, they may give you some tips.  Smiley

Happy stabbing!

He is about 7"/18cm long (nose to tail) and 4.5"/11cm tall.
His eyes are clear glass eyes on wire that I painted light blue with water based acrylic.
He is firmly felted with Romney wool over pipe-cleaner armature and his mane is Merino.

Some recreational felting:

He started off as lioness! Before I added his mane.

Thanks Tracey.
I hope you have the opportunity to start on your first project real soon. Careful, needle felting can be addictive!

I have only made one other similar bear called "Honey Bear".
