Have you tried needle felting?
It’s a wonderful craft, awesome because you can transform a handful of fluffy wool into a beautiful little something in 20 minutes or less. Of course, you can make your creations as intricate as you wish but if you are looking for simple and quick, needle felting can achieve this too.
You start with a big bunch of colorful, un-spun wool that resembles cotton candy. Then you poke the wool many times until it takes on the form you are aiming for. It works because wool fibers have tiny, microscopic barbs, similar to the barbs on a feather. The sharp felting needle has tiny barbs too… these barbs grab the wool fibers and interlock them, tighter and tighter, until a firm, needle felted shape is achieved. It’s truly like magic; starting with fluffy wool and ending with a gorgeous treasure!
You’ll love the happy colors of the wool, the noise the needle makes as it enters the wool, the unlimited possibilities of the things you can make. Felted goodies have such an awesome texture and a warmth that radiates outwards.
Here are some kits from The Magic Onions Shop for you to try…
