Can’t. Stop. Needle Felting!

So since I started, the stabby needle and I have been quite busy together. Here’s a few of the resulting creations:

There have been macarons – a few of them went to my fellow Craft Camp antendees, but these two have so far stayed with me:
Felt Macarons
Inspired by Cinti, who makes lots of these yummies. I found a tutorial here, if you’d like to give them a try too 🙂

And there’s this sweet terrarium:

I couldn’t get a decent pic of it inside the jar, so here’s a better one:
Felt Terrarium 02
The kit for making this comes from Holly at Two Cheese Please. Totally love it – this is my favourite thing I’ve made to date.

Then there was the tutorial I found and just could not resist:
Angry Bird 01

My pig is a little different… not sure I’m 100% happy with it, it’s kind of more cute than menacing!

Niamh got right into the action, helping with both the photo-styling and the actual-bird-flinging.:

Angry bird had to be rescued before too long. Needle felted toys don’t really hold up to much rough play! Niamh was sad until she realised she could use the slingshot to fling any small toy around. Plus, I made her a ladybug:

And then we had to have a final photo-session with everything in:

What’s next? Not sure, but I’ve been busy pinning a whole lot of amazing inspirational images over at Pinterest – here’s the link to my Needle Felting Love board, if you’re interested. Wow!
