More Needle-felting

Although my experience with the mutant blue-tit was somewhat off-putting, I had been given a second needle-felting kit for my birthday, so I thought I’d try again. This one was proudly Welsh, and contained undyed raw British wool from Grey Welsh Tops, Dorset Horn, Black Welsh and Brown North Ronaldsay sheep – so it was all in natural shades from white through grey to brown and black.

I was glad I’d had a go at the Horror Bird first, as the instructions on this kit weren’t particularly clear. Each step was illustrated, but the photos were no more than 1.5cm square, which made it very difficult to see what they were on about. And one of the steps seemed to be missed out altogether in the instructions. However, the end result was rather more acceptable than last time.

A needle-felted rabbit. Or is it a hare?

On balance, I think I’d probably be better off sticking to embroidery!
