Let Me Introduce You To My Hedgedog. Wait? What?
Now these pictures are from last year, and I have sadly worked through all my sets, but I plan to get more around the holiday time to do. Right now I just have too much on my plate, but I wanted to share my first silly attempts.
Dimensions Hedgehog Needle Felt Character Kit. I read everywhere that it would be easy, so I thought 'why not', and I ordered it. This is what it looked like fresh out of the package. He was too cute to pass up.
Well, after I got everything laid out and started
So, would I recommend this set? Yes and no. First of all, the rust particles on the wool were just disgusting. I felt that the wool was not properly cleaned. It made the finished product look dirty to me. However, besides the particles, perhaps if I had
fox, and I honestly want to get this set again and try it again. So that may be a future post on me trying to get a hedgehog to form from the set.. Until then, I have Snuffles The Mighty Hedgedog...I came up with that just now, it's a working name in progress. LOL!
So tell me, have you tried needle felting before? Do you like it? I like it. It's fun to do. I had to wuss out and get finger and thumb guards. I have 'stabbed' myself with the needle, but the guards got the pokes instead of me. What can I say? I don't like pain, and I sure as heck don't want a barbed needle poking into my finger. Sure you can do it without them and just protect your fingers by how you position the wool and always know where your fingers are, but I just felt safer with the guards. Never be embarrassed by protecting yourself while crafting people. :-) If you have pictures of your needle felting crafts feel free to link to them below, I'd love to see them. I have pictures of my other sets I did that I will post about later. Spoiler alert, they all suffered a similar fate to Snuffles The Mighty Hedgedog, you'll want to check back for those gems. LOL! And on that note, I will talk to you awesome people later. Take care until then. Bye for now. :-)
