3D - needle felting by nawafiai 3D - needle felting by nawafiai
So I started needle felting (where you take wool, and stab it lots of times with a barbed needle until it starts to felt) \o/
It feels very therapeutic, just stabbing away (but I did end up stabbing my thumb once).
Wool smells awesome!

This was my first try, so I was just randomly making shapes... which evolved into these things

Aaah, for some reason I enjoy doing repetitive, mundane activities.

my sis does this. I helped her once and it's really fun (except for the stabbing myself)

There's also another way where you use a bit of soapy water on wool, and smoosh it around a bit, and it tightens up the fibres and felts it
such fun

It really is fun! If you mess up, you can easily fix it with more wool : )
