A couple of weeks a go I spent a very enjoyable afternoon crafting, with my friend Sue. Sue invited me round to her house for a wet felting session! Sue was wet felting but asked if I'd tried dry felting, I haven't but love to try any new craft technique.
Sue produced the tools for the dry felting: a needle felting tool, which has sharp barbed needles inside a plastic sleeve; a needle felting brush, this allows the needles to go through the fibers, without damaging the table; a piece of white felt and I brought my own stash of wool tops (roving).
Sue gave me instructions, the basic idea is to stab repeatedly and quickly, with the needle tool, to bond the wool fibers to the felt.
I did a few experiments, with colour and shape, just to get a feel for the technique, it was very absorbing.
Once at home and looking at my piece of dry felting I decided to embellished the shapes with simple embroidery and beading. I cut them out then backed them with more felt, to give them rigidity, and turned them into brooches.
I really enjoyed the dry felting and can see it has lots of possibilities and because of that I am going to invest in a set of tools.
