Three years ago I went crazy for needle felting. I saw a 3 minute video on youtube and it looked so easy. I collected the materials required - inexpensive and easy to get online. I was hooked on making felted treats for gifts - hearts, shamrocks, and eggs....then I started making acorns and fit them into the real caps. It's a great project to do with the kids but be sure to get the tool thing that shields the needles because those things really hurt! I loved working on felting around the dining table in the winter months when my studio was too cold. There are artists who are very prolific in either wet felting or needle felting - very cool stuff out there, give it a google. I was happy to just try it out....and maybe I'll pick it up again as we have snow falling as I type.
