Here are some details about my project:

What materials did you use? Linen, wool roving, wool crewel yarn

What are you most proud of? I love how the tree trunk looks feminine. Can you see the shape of a woman's body?

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I often work on linen as my foundational fabric. If you do, too, be aware that the weave of the linen cannot be too loose, or your needle felting will not be sturdy at all.

Another question, do you needlefelt right into the linen or apply it after felting with sewing?

04/20/2012 Flag

I needlefelt by hand directly into the linen, before I sew the pillow together!

I really have to learn to do this. So many possibilities!

Tova, do you think learning how to do this from a pattern would work for you? I am designing a line of needle felting patterns and it helps to know what would work for those who show an interst. Georgianne

Well it's in the style I love. I 'll definitely look for your patterns, and try it when you have one ready:)
