My duck came about by having yellow wool. Thats it. I had yellow and couldn’t figure out what to make. it was around Easter so I made a duck. I already did sculpting with polymer clay so I made the feet and bill out of clay.
The dog group was my very first attempts at needle felting. They were not very firm or very good. But I thought they were cute back then. Now I take a picture of the dog that I am doing and try to get as close as I can to that breed.
The goose is one of my newest ones. I loved doing it and learning how to mix the colors to get a realistic pattern on the wings.
The flamingo is also one of my newer ones. I had a lady email to ask me if I made them. So I tried. That is what I got. I love him, and so did she.
I have learned that you have to make them firm and mixing colors is hard but can be done. I love doing it because of the feel of the wool and the colors. It is a beautiful artform and you can make so many different things if you put your mind to it. I am a disabled person and sit a lot around the house. I needed an art form that I could do to make some extra money. I tried it and fell in love with the feels and colors and versatility of the wool. I love it and can’t stop. Been doing it for about a year and a half now.
