Sometimes the coolest things happen when you are least expecting it. My beautiful artistic friend came over for a playdate today. I asked her to show us how to felt. She makes the most stunning pregnancy dolls and the wall hangings in her home are to die for.
The girls loved it. I think it gives them each something unique. Grace loves knitting but it is a bit sedate for her. Felting is faster and more tactile. Perfect for her! Lilah is very creative and has the patience to see a project through.
Their first attempt with this new artform was a flat two-dimensional picture. Lilah did a smiley face and a globe. Grace created an owl perched on a branch.
Looks like I have some researching to do. We need some needles, a foam pad and wool. Lots of beautiful colorful wool.....
