Felting Fun

I just love to take something and turn it into something else – turning basic supplies into crafty-goodness! This month I made another video tutorial for you (yes, I do always sit cross legged on the floor to create!) demonstrating the fun you can have with wool roving. Wool can be felted together using water or a needle, and with these basic techniques you can make all kinds of creatures or shapes to enjoy around the home.

As Easter is coming up, I share with you how to wet-felt an egg, and then needle felt a little chick to live inside the egg. Wet felting is great fun to do with your children, but as the felting needle is extremely sharp and scary it’s best to leave that for the adults (I have drawn blood many times, so be careful!).

Enjoy watching, and Happy Easter to your home from mine,

Emily
