I had the most fun this weekend. I was visiting a friend and took my needle felting supplies with me as I was working on an order. His grandson came over and wanted to know what I was stabbing. He was fascinated, and wanted to make his own sculpture. I had some left over wire and extra black wool so we decided to make a black angus cow. Some how if turned into a Scottie, but that’s OK. I was amazed how quickly he picked it up, AND he didn’t even stick his finger!
I went back the next day and took extra supplies with me….just in case! He was more ambitious and wanted to make a border collie! I had the wool and extra needles so away he went! I even showed him how to make a wire armature. About halfway through, his brother came in and wanted to join the fun. He wanted to make a black lab and he did it. I was very pleased that they both were felting like crazy with the energy and enthusiasm of youth! They also got poked, so learned that sometimes there is pain with creativity!LOL!! They are both only 12 and twins. They both picked up needle felting amazingly fast and they were still hard at it when I left. I gave them each a needle and extra wool to be able to finish their dogs. I hope to get some pictures so I can post them!
Keep up the good work boys! HAPPY FELTING!
