Howdy folks! Just wanted to take a quick minute to share the newest addition to my needle-felted family. Meet Barry! Now don’t let his solemn color mislead you… he definitely has a curious side. A real free spirit, he loves being out in nature, romping in the tall grass, pouncing on small bugs and of course having a good nap in a spot of afternoon sun.
I’ve been working on Barry for – oh gosh – a few months now in my spare time… a foot here, a tail there. It’s so rewarding to finish one of these little guys after anticipating it for months! Hope you like him! =)
Just wanted to take a quick moment to share my latest creation!
This lovely little aircraft was made for my boyfriend – who is a helicopter pilot – for Valentine’s Day. The first flight he took me on was in a blue helicopter like this – so I thought it was fitting. This is also my first attempt at adding wire into the process – really love the mix of the two! I finished it off with an inspirational handwritten note on a paper tag and my initials stitched into the back. I’m really having way too much fun with this felting stuff… as soon as I finished this little guy I was already trying to figure out what to start next. No idea where this sudden burst of creative energy came from… has some alien life form taken over my mind? lol.
Oh well, going to ride the creative wave as long as it lasts!
