I made a miniature felted rose under a glass dome! This is part two in my “Little Prince” series. The sickly sheep is here.
If you remember the book, the rose demands that the little prince place her under a glass dome every night to protect her from drafts.
I gave this to a close friend as a present 🙂
My first attempt at 3-ply. The end result looks grey but it’s really a mix of light and dark wool. BFL is softer than the Romney and the Shetland I’ve been spinning earlier.
Comparison with the 2-ply Shetland. As you can see, the three-ply is rounder and thicker.
Needle-felted Sheep Bag Charm
Well, I needle-felted one but I never needle-felted an animal before so I’m afraid this sheep looks a bit…sickly…perhaps.
In honor of the famous scene from Le Petit Prince.
Needle-felted Rubber Fruit Phone Strap
My first attempt at needle-felting. I thought I’ll try out needle-felting since I took up hand-spinning and have all this wool/fiber around.
I dunno why disembodied moustaches are considered cute. Anyway, this is a sparkly felted rhinestone mobile phone dust plug with a tiny gold acorn.
My first handspun. Grey Romney Wool 2 -ply. As you can see, the yarn’s pretty thick because I was unable to spin thin singles when I first started.
The red thread is simply cotton embroidery floss I had lying around that I used to skein.
