Felted Ted and Little Friend

 I haven't done any felting for what feels like ages, most of this years crafting has been baby orientated... knitting and crochet for sweet baby Zack. I've thoroughly enjoyed doing it (and still have baby projects underway), but really fancied getting my needles out and felting.

Introducing little Ted





 I made him yesterday and found the process very therapeutic.




Little Ted has an even smaller friend, he has tiny grey bunnikins.




Bunnikins was a bit fiddlier to make and I did stab one of my fingers, but just the once so I'm improving!





Not sure where to put them now, I wouldn't want a child to have them as they're small and the eyes are glued and set in rather than embroidered. I think they can sit in my doll cabinet for now.



 Looking forward to doing some more felting now, perhaps some Christmas decorations.


Take care

    1. Thank you. The needles are barbed, but I’m getting a bit better at not stabbing myself as much! x

  6. Little Ted & bunny are absolutely gorgeous Cheryl!! I tried needle felting once but I gave up after stabbing my finger so many times. They would look delightful sitting in a small childs china cup perhaps.

  22. Those are precious. You did a wonderful job making them, and what a special gift for the baby. I have a friend that does needle felting, and her blog is Angelsdoor on my side bar. I think you would enjoy seeing her creations. She's so talented. Please do show us if you do any Christmas decorations. This felting is sweet, and you have a talent, indeed.
