What was your inspiration?
Needle felting, trying new things. I wanted to make an adult version of my Children's Butterfly Mittens - this seemed like a good solution.
What are you most proud of?
The colors, and originality of the idea.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
To needle felt onto mittens make sure the mittens are very 'solid'. This pair was knit with 2 strands of worsted weight yarn together - knit tightly. This made a good base to needle felt onto.
