Machine Needle Felting

I will be showing four different techniques during December. I tried to think of something interesting but if nothing else, it will be colorful.

I'd like to start with machine needle felting. Today I will show you the materials I will be using.


This is a small piece of 100% wool quilt batting. I dyed it with acid dyes


Now you will really hate me. I bought over 50 balls of roving plus a bag of silk roving from a woman in Florida for about $50.00. I know.


These are the bags that I will be using. The silk roving is in the lower left bag.


I used both the fuzzy fibers as well as the curly ones.


I felted with Sari yarn and ended up breaking a needle. I decided to couch it after that


This some really beautiful limey olive roving.

Tomorrow I will talk about the process.

  2. I could never hate you.....even if I wish I'd found that lady in Florida, first. What a great deal. Looking forward to seeing where this goes.
