Felting Workshop

It's always interesting to try something new. This week I had the opportunity to try my hand on felting. Actually, it started a couple of weeks ago, when we made the actual felt as well as the little felt balls and yesterday we used them to make this Santa. Not as easy as I thought and quite time consuming . Everything is sewn by hand and the trims on Santa's coat are needle felted as well as the beard. The material is pure merino wool, very soft and lovely to work with.


 It starts to look like Christmas!
