woodsy wall hanging


I finished up this felted project over the weekend and am very happy with the way it turned out. It is from the Japanese craft book pictured a few posts ago and is called Small articles made of wool felt. I decided to go with all natural wool roving colors like shown in the book so the lovely turquoise and yellow were scraped for this project. The bird 'eggs' are wet felted and the birds I needle felted. I strung them on cotton and tied to a branch.

It makes me want to go for a walk in the woods and take photographs of cute forest creatures and mushrooms... if only the woods were right outside my door.

I LOVE that.
I was wondering...where do you get the wool to make the projects? Is it already all "combed out"? Dont know the correct wording I don't think. Do you know of any websites that explain pretty well how to do projects like that.?

I got the wool from A Child's Dream Come True. You can find the link in my sidebar.
I don't know any websites that explain the birds but you can get directions for the balls on knitty.com
