A Sampling of My Needle Felted Animals
Needle felting is a sculptural process of building form over a wire armature. Wool fiber has tiny barbs on it. Holding wool fiber against the form and repeatedly poking it with a needle that also has tiny barbs on it entangles the barbs on the fiber and locks them into a single piece. This is a time-consuming process but one which I find rewarding as I see the animal emerge. The colors you see in the pieces are the colors of the wool. I use glass beads for the eyes - or, on larger pieces like the bear actual glass eyes for doll-making.
