My ladies hard at work learning the addictive craft of needlefelting.
The finished robins. What amazed me was how the ladies all used the same templates and yet everyone ended up creating a very different robin.
Kirsties Handmade Britain. I made a prototype of the robin which was then on display in the shop. The photos above show the work shop in full swing.
I have since completed another needlefelting class and an applique class. The needlefelting class was a choice of hearts or birds. The birds were exotic birds rather than robins this time. The hearts had beads sewn on them and would be lovely if stuffed with lavender.
The applique below is the one I made to entice people to book for the course. the ladies on the course all made very different things once again. One lady made coasters using applique, another lady made a heart shape embellished with lots of buttons. Sadly I forgot to take any photographs of this work shop and must remember to ask Jane for some! The next course is next Saturday and is needlefelting again..........
