Sunday morning felting

Sunday morning projects.  PJ's and felting.  Coffee and muffins.  I love weekend mornings like this.

The kids wanted to make a felted picture.

Sometimes they like to free-hand their felting but today they asked me to draw something for them to "color".  Using a Sharpie, I drew simple pictures on a piece of wool blend felt for them to fill in.

They know to keep their fingers far away from the needle and to go slow, but they still require lots of reminders.  There were a couple of finger jabs for the boys but my youngest, who gets more felting time than they do, remained poke-free.


I love seeing the colors they chose and how much work they decided to put into their pieces.  I also thought it was interesting that Avery's bird looked so much like a Painted Bunting, even though he had never seen one before.

I hope you're having a relaxing Sunday too.

How did you have that set up? I'm new to felting - was that a wooden or foam block they were felting on? The felt didn't look wet or soapy but maybe I just didn't see it. This looks so fun and I'd love to try it with my kids!

Thank you so much, ladies!

tessa - they're using felting needles and foam blocks on this project. It's hard to see in the photos but they're using the needles to jab the wool into the felt base.

I have done wet-felting with them as well though. That post is here: http://lilfishstudios.blogspot.com/2011/07/bubble-hands-felting-with-kids.html
both projects were a lot of fun. Hope that helps.
