Felted Landscape#2

Following the workshop earlier in the year I decided to have a go at one at home, as I had all the necessary materials.

Roving a plenty

At the class we didn’t use the lethal needles I was familiar with, but a nifty gadget. Mr Amazon got one to me in a day.

Lots of needles in one, with protection from inadvertently stabbing oneself.
Piece of ordinary white acrylic felt.

Start to lay out the roving to form the landscape.

Add some more and commence stabbing
Add in more colours and start to create details like trees.

I swapped my tools at this point for the single needle. Care needed not to snap it. I did.

I used a card to frame it, to aid decision making.

Onto the final stage of embroidering it, with stem stitch, French knots and a button that was just right.

The sun ray is wrong, but otherwise reasonably content with my solo effort,

I’ve borrowed a book from the library with some useful ideas. Really enjoying this. Love to know if anyone has tried needlefelting, how do you get on? Or have you branched out recently to try something else new to you?

  1. Failed? The finished piece looks awesome to me!

    I have never tried needle felting but I love that picture. Protected needle points sounds a god idea to me!

  3. Haven’t tried felting, Cathy, and have no plans to do so. Yours looks lovely!

  4. I love this so much!

  5. I’ve never tried this, maybe one day, but in the meantime I’ll leave it to people like you who clearly know what they are doing! Love your sheep

  6. You are so clever. And you can do so many things. Lovely! cute sheep.

  7. Lovely! You are right about those needles though…. Needle felting can be dangerous!

  8. I love your felted and stitched landscape! So creative and lovely 🙂 I have done a little needle felting, but it was 3D – I made a bunny.

  9. That’s one craft I’ve never tried…..yours looks great so I’ll enjoy the view and leave it at that!

    Oh that’s lovely! I’ve never tried needle felting before, but you’ve inspired me to have a go.

    This is lovely. My daughter got a lovely kit a couple of Christmas’s ago and made a lovely landscape with sheep too.

  12. Very pretty. I might at some point try making pictures with weaving.

  13. What a fun and beautiful new creative adventure! Your little sheep makes me smile:)!!❤️❤️

  14. Gorgeous!! Wow! I am so impressed!

    you’ve taken to NF like a duck to water! It’s not something I’ve tried, and I probably won’t because mt craft stash is big & varied enough already ^^

    • I don’t understand that concept, a stash that is big and varied enough already? I look on everything as being a necessity, keeping my brain alert etc etc!!

  16. That’s really cute, I love the French knot flowers. I’ve done a fair bit of needle felting in the past, and I know what you mean about the needles!

  17. That is fabulous! I bought a needle-felting kit for a long train journey years ago and haven’t done any since – you have inspired me to look for the kit and have another go.

  18. That gadget reminds me of the things used to immunise secondary school kids in the 1960’s – I refused to have mine done as I didn’t want to have a permanent white mark at the top of my arm. Your picture is lovely and I like the cute sheep 🙂

    • Indeed it does. My big vaccine like that was done when I was a baby on my ankle. Mum didn’t want me to have that mark

  19. I love your felted landscape, and the little sheep is the perfect touch! 🙂
