Congrats Carol!!! Look at these eyelashes on her dragon! This is only the second thing that she ever felted! She only had pink and black wool to work with….I don’t know about you, but I don’t know if I would have thought of something to make with those colors. This shows IMAGINATION and CREATIVITY! She also wanted to make something for someone else which shows GENEROSITY.She made toes with claws and nostrils and wing patterning and individual black scales going down the back and onto the tail!! All in all a really WONDERFUL piece that is uniquely her own. It also shows a HUMOROUS subject choice. She wins a complete needle felting kit with her choice of wool!
I love Carol’s comment below:
“This ended up taking me quite awhile to make because when I tried to work the ideas in my head the felt had a different plan! ” Don’t we all find that out!! Isn’t it amzing that the wool seems to have a mind of it’s own sometimes! Carol had the PATIENCE and PERSISTANCE to keep working at it until she made her dragon!
NEEDLE FELTING starts with an idea in your HEAD. It has to go down your arm and into your hand and through the NEEDLE into the WOOL. The TRICK IS……Getting the two to match!!!!
HUMOR-some of the first things that you make may be pathetic! It doesn’t matter! You will improve!! LAUGH and learn! Each thing that you create makes you better.
