Guess who has been creeping back in Swap-Bot? Needle Felting Attempt.


Jes, Jes, es true! I went back! I mean, I had to do something. I have been suffering from a bad case of "Creative Block" for quite sometime! What better way then to get my mojo groovin again?

So I purchased a needle felting kit from Etsy ages ago, and it had been sitting in my closet, when one day, I decided to lurk back on Swap-Bot. I almost didn't remember my password, that is how long it had been.

As I was trolling, I came across a needle felt ATC Challenge! Perfecto, this would MAKE me do something I have been wanting to do for such a long time. I know with practice, I can get really good at it, but for now, I am just having fun. It really is quite easy and very calming? It also helps getting out some pent up frustrations. Stabbing away with my needles had an uncommon soothing effect on me. I am sure there is some much needed therapy behind that statement, but for now, needle felting will have to scratch that itch.

Anyway, Here is a picture of what I started with.

This is what I ended up with.........

I know, it's not rocket science, but it was actually easier than I thought and there are a ton of tutorials on Youtube. Here is a pretty simple one to get you going.

Hi Yoli. How fun that was. I think it's something I would like to do sometime. I never heard of needle felting but I think I could like it a lot. Thanks for sharing. Good to see you.
