Easter Felt Activities

Soft felted bunny and chick made from hand felted merino wool.

I've enjoyed rediscovering the joys of very soft felting.

Also used some manufactured merino wool prefelts to make some more pictures. Liked the result and it"s perhaps possible to be more precise using this.

Felting around Gems by Will

Will (age 10) made these for his teachers last summer by felting around a gem stone and then cutting out a hole to expose the gem.

Think he did a fantastic job! Must get him to make me one!

Felting around a balloon

A few years ago experimented with felting around balloons.

My first attempt was not too successful:

It made a nice plant pot though.

Managed to retain the shape of the balloon a little better with practise!

And one inspired by Monet.

Colourful Felt Easter Eggs

Lots of lovely soft egg shapes from some felt I made from carding little bits of wool.

Think this bit would have looked good as an abstract picture!

A few eggs decorated.

I've put them together in a kit.

I also did a mini felt workshop at a local craft fair. The children did a great job and made some lovely designs.
