Back to Nature

Good Morning Everyone
im all caught up on samples  so i had some me time
with my needle felting
it’s been years since i made my first needle felting project a miniature jointed teddy that i gave to my mum …
i had to search for my box of wool tops …trust me that’s a story for another day lol
i decided to make this  last night
My Little Acorn

made from 100% British wool with  crystal German glass glitter for the frost effect
i gave it a blast with the spray and shine
from crafters companion to seal the glitter and stiffen the top
im now sporting a lovely plaster on my finger lol
after stabbing myself with the needle a few times but hey i had fun making it..
well worth the pain
thank you for popping by
hugs linda xx

I've watched this felting done a couple of times now..not attempted it myself but looks a great technique to learn!

Hope your finger hasn't suffered too much what with the stabbings!

Cute little acorn and like the frosty effect -

Crafty hug,

Mandy :)
