One of my 2014 goals was to try new crafts. Needle felting was high on that list of ones to try. I got a needle felting kit for Christmas two years ago and I was just so nervous to try it out. I am not the most graceful person and I get hurt a lot. I’ve been to the ER because of an Xacto knife before, so the idea of me stabbing things with needles seemed like a bad idea.
I finally got over my fear and gave it a whirl this past weekend and I loved it, it’s so amazing to me to take some wool roving and a needle and end up with a solid object. I needle felted the heart, but the little balls I wet felted. The heart was a good start, and next I plan on attempting something 3D,
I embroidered an E on the heart and knew I wanted to make a necklace for Evie. I originally planned on adding a jump ring, but that wasn’t going to work. Instead I just passed the needle right through the heart and attached it that way.
Evie was very excited to get this necklace, every time I work on anything she asks if it’s for her. It was a quick and cute little project and perfect for Valentine’s Day!
