Needle Felting Edwardian Lady

I was itching to try my hand at a free standing needle felt figure, to be honest I didn't really know what I was going to make when I started this.
She took loads of carded course core wool to to make her body but I think the end result was worth it.

I love everything about her, I made her a coat and matching hat, then added tiny roses and leave to decorate.

I gave her an up-do hairstyle fitting for the outfit.

I also thought a hand muff would finish her perfectly.
I'm really rather pleased how she turned out all 6 inches of her.

Needle Felting Fairy Amy Felthouse

Maybe I'm going a little housebound crazy but this little fairy totally reminded me of Amy Winehouse, I sang her songs all the way through giving her the hairstyle.

I love the rich colours on this one and thankfully when needle felting now I hardly ever need a band aid for my fingers (yay).

I now have quite a collection of these fairies so may need to do a give away once it's safe to go out.
How is everyone else entertaining yourselves? Have you learnt a new craft?

Needle Felting The Robin Fairy

Another Fairy for another special lady, This one is for Noreen Mckie although I'm unsure to when these fairies will be posted due to the current COVID-19 situation
I know how much Noreen likes Robins so I figured this one would be just right for her.

I have to say that I love the colour way on this one and loved making her hairstyle.

I wish I was brave enough for her hair colour myself but would fear that I would look like Mrs Slocombe

Needle Felt Pooch Fairy

This gorgeous fairy was made for my good friend Ruth, I try to add something to the fairies that mean something for the recipient so for Ruth it had to be a  West Highland Terrier.

it also needed to have a blonde bob hairstyle, I think I got this one just right for her.

Needle Felt Hare

Spring has sprung in my house, My lovely friend bought me a needle felt kit to keep me occupied whist I was recouping at home. I was thrilled and got to start with it as soon as I could.
I free-handed a mushroom to sit along with him to set the scene.

isn't he gorgeous, I may need to felt another in a different colour way, he reminds me of Pipkins which was one of my favourite programs as a little girl.

I was pretty pleased how the mushroom turned out too.

Yesterday was a pretty yucky day for me and I spent most of it in bed, Today is a little better thankfully.

Crazy Bee Fairy

You will all of heard of the crazy cat lady, yes? well I have a friend who is the crazy bee fairy and has wrote several wonderful children's books about bees so I thought I would Needle Felt a little fairy to watch over her and this is what I have come up with.

I have to say that the bees were trickier than I thought they'd be but after I had stabbed my fingers a couple of times, I learnt to keep them well out of the way pretty fast haha!
Do you know the difference in wings between a fairy and an angel?
A fairy has 4 wings and an angel has 2 wings.
I didn't know so I am learning along the way.

Needle Felting Fairy

I always like to try a new craft each year and I needed something that I could sit is a comfy chair with a lap tray and wasn't heavy. I have a few weeks of rest and recoup-oration after abdominal surgery so needle felting won.
I started before I went into hospital and this is my first attempt.
she is a KatySue cake fairy.

Of course I have handed this one to Sue Balfour as its in our company colours.
I've loads more to make and I'll blog them as they are finished.
I have to say as my first make with needle felting I'm pretty pleased with the result, I hope you like her too x
