Adorable. Great smooth texture, and I love the addition of the curly locks!

Too cute! I always love the thought of custom conversation hearts, and these are cuddly, so they're that much better. Interesting idea to use a mold for needle felting, too. I'll have to remember this project for next V-day.

Thanks! I might just dig this out and make it a Valentine. Grin

Awesome! This is on the list of "things to felt". I have found reference photos for the front but not any for the back. Did you base this on any photos?
I made it awhile ago, but if memory serves, I believe I just "winged" it.

Awesome! Do you mind if I ask how thick the vinyl you used was?

I Googled How to sew on a shank button, and found these 2 pages which seems to have good explanations.

That is too awesome! I love that song, and I love your pillowcase. I don't think I've ever seen a "tattoo" font filled in with yellow. It looks great.
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: My new "Urchin" on: September 13, 2008 04:01:32 PM
Thank you. Smiley  I expected that yarn to be a nightmare - it's a thick and thin single plied with a loopy novelty single - but I didn't find it bad at all.
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My new "Urchin" on: September 06, 2008 11:12:06 PM
My version of the "Urchin" beret from ysolda.com, in size Large since I have a large noggin. I really like the pattern, and it works up quickly (I made this one in an evening). I used 2 skeins of Sean Sheep Wildwood in "Teak Smoke", with a little bit left over. I have to say, I liked it more than I expected. It was easy to work with, and I like the texture (I think it kind of looks like stones). 

I'm hoping that some more blocking will keep it from falling flat on the top.

Thanks for looking! Smiley
20  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Needle felting supplies at Walmart on: August 30, 2008 03:40:46 AM
I was browsing through the yarn aisle at Walmart a couple of days ago when much to my surprise, I stumbled upon a small display of needle felting supplies! (I can't remember the last time I went to Walmart, so I don't know how long they've carried this stuff.) They were selling a small kit with needles, a piece of foam, a paper template of a flower, and some instructions. Plus small packages of roving, with 2 similar colours per pack (almost enough to fill a juice glass, for around $3.00 Canadian).  They also had pre-made flower brooches and handbags on the same display, made to look like they've been needle felted by hand.

I can't say I fell in love with the products themselves. I do, however, like the thought of making felting supplies more accessible to people who'd like to try needle felting for the first time. I know there's nowhere else around here that sells them, and buying online can feel overwhelming. I wouldn't buy all my supplies there, but I definitely would have bought my first starter kit, if they had been available at the time. It seems like an unlikely place, but keep your eyes peeled at Wal-Mart if you're having trouble finding needles and roving.
