So Doran and I tried the art of felting for the first time….
Needle Felting is the ancient art of sculpting with wool or acrylic fibers into objects by stabbing the fibers with a barbed needle to create a solid. For us, we decided to try to make a bear and penguin.
Once we opened the package, we began to wonder if we were in over our heads with this project.
So we start separating the fibers and stabbing the heck out of it… and one hour later we get:
Our necks hurt from hunching over, so we decided to take a break and continue this another day.
On the second day and another hour, we get to this:
Finally, after three hours (1 hour a day), countless amounts of stabbing and surprisingly only a few pricked fingers (Doran: 0, Eric: 3) we are done!
- Was it fun? – No, our necks hurt
- Are you satisfied with the results? – Yes, they are supa adorable
- Did you have fun doing it? – Not really. It’s too much work for such a tiny thing!
- Would you do it again? – Never again
