Needle Felting

This is a great tutorial for beginners! I am inspired to give it another try!

Woodland Weavers' & Spinners' Guild

After our needle felting workshop, I wanted to share some links for those interested in seeing and learning more.

Below is a beginner tutorial shows how to make the basics shapes you would use as building blocks for any needle felted sculpture.

For more inspiration and to see some the amazing things people are doing with needle felting, check out this search on Pinterest.

Someone mentioned this artist, Felt alive, who does needle felted charactertures of famous people.

Going Gnome was as NY Sheep and Wool so some of us saw their work.

Till next time,

Inspiration from others

Lately I have been a bit of a rut so I am going to others for inspiration. To help get my groove back, I will be sharing some blogs that I really enjoy! If you have a blog you want to share, please let me know! Thanks to all the great bloggers, fellow crafters and readers for you’re inspiration!

Its been a while….

It’s been a long while since I have blogged. I can’t decide if it’s been because I have been too busy with three kids and school, trying to keep things organized and making sure everyone is where they are supposed to be with what they are supposed to have, or possibly just too tired and when I get down time I just chill in front of the TV and my iP

hone, or possibly just have not been inspired recently. I suppose I haven’t really been inspired lately. I haven’t sold anything on Etsy and every project I attempt seems to fail.

I recently decided to enroll in a sewing class that is quiet extensive and I am excited to begin the class. It will teach me how to read patterns, how to make clothing. Though I prefer making weird and unique creatures, freehand or on the fly as one of my children is always saying lately, I have the upmost confidence that this class will teach me many things, inspire me and give me goals. Anyone else taken classes just to break out of a creative block? Let me know what you do to get out of those ruts. Come on, I need some inspiration and motivation!
