Needlefelting eyes

Even if you do not needle felt or you are not very good at it , this video is worth watching. For accomplished needle felters it would give you plenty of ideas and techniques. For others  it would make you aware how you can achieve these things and how you can lay down and overlay colour to get a better effect. Alan is one of our prizewinning needle felters and he shared this to our Facebook page. It is too good not to share. Enjoy.

Tasmanian Devils

Alan has patiently worked on this Tasmanian Devils picture over a number of weeks. We have watched it change and develop and we saw each of the devils being created. We were surprised and delighted with how the finished picture looked. A lot of thought has gone into the creation and presentation of these devils. They are needlefelted so it is a lot of painstaking work. Well worth it.
