felted rocks

i have finished my felted rocks kit.

it was very quick and easy but enjoyable.

this is my first attempt at felting and the kit required both needle and wet felting.

i found that needle felting is a lovely thing to do, although i was a little scared of the needle to begin with, it made a satisfying sound as it went in and out binding the fibres together.

and the wet felting was such fun. bubbles forming in your hand and feeling the wool tighten around the rock as it was worked. it is something i will do with jess very soon, as what child wouldn't like making the bubbles required of wet felting.

so a few more felted rocks are on the agenda.
