The summer 2011 issue of Spin-Off focuses on felt, felting, and anything feltable. I love needlefelting, and I fell in love ("felt" in love?) with the little felted fairy shown at left. Isn't she the cutest thing?
Needlefelting is fun and easy, though it's slightly hazardous because those needles are SHARP! But the results are wonderful. I've just finished a pair of felted slippers for my mom and I'm going to needlefelt a geometric motif onto them to add some flair.
Check out the article in Spin-Off; it provides step-by-step directions for making your own fairy.
I'm definitely going to make one of these to grace my home office—I know she'll bring luck and deadline-meeting blessings!
