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
