Needle Felting Newbie

Earlier this week I went to my local alpaca farm to take a class on needle felting.  I have seen plenty of needle felted objects before, especially on Etsy, but never tried it myself.  It does make sense as an extension of my other crafts though because it involves using the fiber I typically use to spin into yarn.  So we learned how to make this little alpaca fellow.  Isn’t he cute?  I also learned more about raising alpaca from the owner.  That’s a slippery slope!  I have probably spent more time this week thinking about raising real alpaca than the time it took to make this little creature.

 

I see many more needle felted objects in my future!  Check it out yourself if you have an interest.  A lot easier than either knitting or crocheting, but not a craft you would want to do around small children (the needle is very, very sharp).  Until next time!

  1. Love it. So cute. I’m just starting to dip my toe into knitting toys. And from there it’s only a small step to the left into needle felting.
