Felted Ornament with Folk Art Santa


DSCF2164

I won’t bore you with a lot of information. I had the ornament already felted. I didn’t use it because you can still see the stitches. Decided to try the needle felted Santa and it was HARD to do!! I reduced the picture to half  the size of pattern. This took more time than the larger one on the felted mitten!  😦

Oh, I did use a darker red on this one than I did on the mitten. It is not the camera

Felted Christmas Ornament with Needle Punch Chicadee


I knitted a piece of wool and sewed up the seam and gathered the top and bottom around a styrofoam ball. I then put it in washing machine and felted it for 20 minutes. Then I took wool roving and needle punched  the chicadee pattern like the one on the felted slippers that I made. I got the gauge for the ball from the felted slippers . I knitted the cord seperately and felted in my table top felter and cut to length and sewed it on. I added a velvet bow the color of the berries. It is for sale in my Etsy shop.
