Needle Felting my first Giraffe
Have a little peek into my felting studio to see the process of felting my first Giraffe.
This is the very beginnings. A couple hours have already been spent on the making of a giraffe.

A giraffe getting its spots!
All done! He is available to purchase in my etsy shop.

Hi, Teresa. I am ecstatic: I can hardly believe it, but my moose has just been delivered, by the Canada Post truck on a Sunday (which they must do only pre-Christmas, I guess) and he is BEYOND wonderful!

There are 2 methods that can be used to create felt. Wet felting, and needle felting. You may already be familiar with wet felting, if you ...
