When I was doing some research for my Appa and Momo costumes for Halloween, I found this cute picture. I had never even heard of needle felting before, but after seeing what awesome things you could make, I had to attempt it.
I ordered some wool and supplies from The Silver Penny. They had a really good price on plain natural wool, so I decided to dye some of it myself with green Kool-Aid following this tutorial. It worked perfectly so I continued roughly following the rest of the tutorial to make a felted playscape for Ivy.
She was ecstatic Christmas morning to discover her very own fairy garden. The garden wouldn't be complete without fairies, of course, so I ordered these ones, as well as a bridge and boat.
|Ivy also got this Melissa and Doug Treehouse to go along with the fairy garden.|
|The night before Christmas, Ivy asked so sweetly if Santa could bring something for Bunny. So how could he not?|
|I also tried making a few needle felted sculptures, like this Rudolph ornament.|
|And it's only natural to make a sheep out of wool, right?|
|Don't worry, Maren wasn't left out.|
|Making these girls happy is so worth it.|
