Needlefelting beginner !



My new Needle Felting(Embellisher) machine came yesterday,these are my very first pieces,I LOVE it,when i first looked at it i thought ekkkkk i,m scared,i hate learning new machines and gadgets,but this is so easy !! no sewing no cotton,just a five prong set of needles that push into almost any sort of fabric,i hope lol,but i have used felt for a base here,also very narrow ribbon for the tree trunks .I mean to try other fabrics later,so if anyone has any tips for a beginner they would be most welcome or could recommend a good book,please let me know.

I started off by watching this vidio over and over,till it sunk in here

I bought some wool rovings i think its called and some balls of fibre,different colours.the top landscape is a mixture of both,i may bead that later,I am so thrilled with this new toy lol.I really want to do landscapes and book covers,its a whole new ball game this lol.

Latest,getting better,this is going to be a cover for a little book

Wow, Pattie. These are fabulous, especially love the landscape one. It's hard to believe it's the first time you've used the embellisher.

Flipping heck, I'd say you got the hang of that machine pretty darned quickly!

Heavens, what will you produce when you've had it a month!!!! I got a cool embellishing book from the library recently - if I can remember the name I will email it to you.

Pattie your felted works are so beautiful, got my felting machine a year ago and it's my best toy, it's so easy to use, and you can felt on all kinds of fabric, enjoy your new toy.

Lovely work Pattie indeed. I ordered some roving from Walmart a few days ago to be delivered to my local store. Pretty colours. Did you see Aileen's blog she is a real inspiration. I would love to do landscapes like she does.

Not to detract from your work of course :-)

Fabulous work. How about a DVD?! Inspired Embellishing from http://inspired.colouricious.com/
I know I'm biased, but they really are a good grounding.

Keep at it!
