full colour felting

Needle felting is addictive – I have even started doing it on my lunch break with co-workers at the office!  The kids are happy to work quietly on their felting projects, turning local wool into ornaments, treasure pouches, lucky pocket talismans and little creatures of all description! All this busy felting means we are running low on some roving colours.  Lucky for me, my friend at Fiddlehead Farm is right around the corner with a rainbow of wool from her generous sheep. And lucky for us, there is a sheep named Margaret whose natural wool colour is the perfect shade for the reindeer and tree trunks my girls have been envisioning!

I cannot show you the finished products (they are all surprises after all), but I can tell you that Pinterest is a great source for needle felting ideas and that kids do not need any inspiration at all…they amaze me with the designs their little fingers create!

What holiday crafts are your fingers busy with these days?
