Someone asked me what a good first project would be.
My answer! What ever INSPIRES YOU!
My first project was a fluffy pomeranian. Not an easy thing to make, but I loved doing it!!!
DO YOU THINK?……I could never do that……I don’t have a creative bone in my body……
WELL… THINK AGAIN!!!! ANYONE can needle felt. You can do what ever you wish! Just have fun and play with the wool. Many people let a project form while they are doing it. No plans…they just let the wool let them know what it will be. Remember in my “Felting Fun” story with the boys? We were making a black cow, but somewhere along the way it turned into a Scottie. That’s fine!
ART isn’t about the goal…it’s the CREATIVE process that’s important! It’s YOUR project and YOUR feelings and LOVE will go into it. My best dogs are the ones that I’ve made just for fun, because I had an “itch” to make a certain breed with a certain look. ANYTHING can inspire you! Just do it!
This is just wool! It can be changed. If the head is wrong just cut it off and make another! Leg too long? Cut it to the right length! Too short? Add more wool. This is an easily changed medium to work with. You can have so much fun painting with the wool to get it just how YOU want it…..
And when you’re done….you will have a unique, wonderful creation that was made by you..from the heart! HAPPY FELTING!!
ps.watch the fingers!!!
