Well, if it’s me doing it the answer’s yes. I’ve seen youtube videos of people making lovely things but for now I’m just stabbing stuff.
You see, before Christmas mum did a bit of needlefelting. Or rather, she sneaked in on a workshop being held for students and pretended to be working whilst actually having a go herself – training and development people! Anyway, she enjoyed it and didn’t manage to finish the piece she was working on so I bought a load of needles and roving for her for Christmas. I also forced my little brother to use a sewing machine and make a needle case – look at this!
He chose the fabric, the fancy stitches, the felt, even the thread colour. He sewed it all himself and I was very impressed.
Today we finally found a few minutes for mum to show me how it’s done (ish).
Wanna see what I made?
Nope, I haven’t got a clue either. It’s a bakewell sushi, um, with a tail. I got a bit carried away adding bits of wool here and there and forgot to actually look at it. Still, it was fun!
And anyway, mum’s is weird too.
I think I need to do a bit more to get the hang of this, but I like it!
