I have not posted my newest creations in quite a while and I have a new one I want to share but though I should get up to date before that.
So here is a post to bring my creations up to date here on the blog. It might be a bit long!
After the Mushroom Girl that I made and shared in the last needle felting post I made this one, which I call Emma’s Garden.
The raised bed garden has an array of vegetables that can be planted and harvested, along with potted flowers, a small flower garden with stones, a tomato plant in an old tire, a watering can an a bowl of freshly picked tomatoes. Emma’s apron can also be removed.
After that I made a few small animals, some magnets and a vegetable set.
I found a supplier for raw undyed wool just over the border in Ontario and they have wool that come from Quebec and Ontario and the prices are quite reasonable. I got black, white and grey and when I got it I knew that I had to make sheep. Isn’t that pig cute?
My next big project was a bigger one… It stands a foot high and is the perfect hight for one of the families that I make. There were a lot of learning with came with which included making a hollow shape that could stand up well, making the hinged door and window and the detailed vines on the sides.
I found these vintage planters at a antique shop and decided to give them a new life as pin cushions. The cushion can be removed so the planter is still intact.
After that I made this cute dragon set that comes with a girl and a boy and chest full of treasure. This one is made sturdy for little hands to play with.
My next creations were made for the We Shine unschooling gathering in the Catskills in June. We had an amazing time and I loved to be be able to share my needle felting at the street fair and even was able to get some people to try felting.
These are my new little toys creations that sold very quickly at the street fair. Crocheted Carrot with a needle felted bunny and a crocheted wedge of cheese with a needle felted mouse.
Not needle felted but this the crocheted mason jar cozies that I make, I only drink out of mason jars and love using them for hot beverages also and with the handle it makes keeps you hands warm without burning.
I also made this needle felted painting that fits in a 5 X 7 frame
some miniature vegetable and fruits (in crocheted bowls)
and some little felted scenes and items that could become magnets or pins or ornaments.
I am having so much fun creating with wool!
