Once I was at Winterwood and saw a gorgeous toadstool/mushroom house made from wool felt. I was so impressed I decided to try my hand at making one.
I bought some beautiful 5 mm thick wool-felt, cut it to size & hand stitched it.
I needle/dry felted the roof with base wool then, once it was the right shape I needled it again with a beautiful bright red corriedale wool.
This was my first attempt at needle/dry felting ever! It was a semi-painful but fun learning experience (a bit like using my new computer).
My friend Yvette asked me to make her one for her daughter, so I did.
I made the 'roof' a different shape and colour to my first attempt.
And these are the people who live there!
I am currently making a 'big' house so that a few hands can get in and play at the same time..
Watch this space....
