Needle Felting Class

Took a needle felting class in February at The Knitting Basket.  We were making an owl.  I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it.  You can take out your frustrations and de-stress with all that stabbing.  I broke one needle and badly bent another one! This is my finished owl.
 I decided to put a heart on the back of my owl; which other people in the class decided to do as well.
The photo below are all the owls that we made in the class.  Everyone had such a lovely take on how they wanted their owls to look like.  The one without the face hadn't been finished when the photo was taken.

 I bought some bags of rovings and decided to have a go making one at home.  Not sure what I was going for but I think I have made a Zombie Owl...LOL

I enjoyed making this, but I don't think I am talented enough.  So although I will attend the odd class, I don't think I will take this up as a hobby.  Do you or have you ever done needle felting?

I have never given it a try but would love to.

Never tried needle felting, i don't like the feel of the fleece that is used.
Cute owls though.

You did a great job on your first owl, not so sure about the second one.

One of the women in our quilting guild has done a lot of needle felting and at one of our recent meetings she did a demonstration and we all tried our hand at it. It was fun to do, but not my idea of a hobby I would enjoy doing.

Enjoy your day.

By the way I have started up a new blog, Life in S. W, Ontario, the previous one quit working and I did not know how to fix it.

I have never taken a class or even tried to do it. I probably never will since needle arts ar not exactly my strong suit. It is a very cute owl though!

There is a lady here that does craft fairs selling her felted projects. I have often looked at perhaps giving it a try, but I don't know that I really need another set of projects.

Your owl is adorable.

God bless.

I haven't, but it seems to be popping up on my radar a lot lately. I have bags and bags of fleece that need to be used up too.

I love both your owls.
I’ve never done any felting. But my nieces did when younger and made me an old lady
She was beautiful.
Not sure why they made me an OLD lady lol
I guess at their tender ages. That’s what I was hahahah
