For the Easter baskets

I was hoping to make some cloth napkins and some crayon/paper book cover type things for the boys’ Easter baskets, but they aren’t done yet. So I guess we’ll see what I get done tonight at my Saturday Night Crafty Club! However, I did make some wool eggs (wet felted in the washing machine with needle felted details) and I needle felted some cute little guys to go inside. I still want to do a blanket stitch around the opening of the eggs which I’ll do tonight. I’m not really happy with the penguin, but it was the first time I had ever made a needle felted little figure and I did it without instructions or a pattern so I guess considering that, he came out alright. I’m sure my son won’t mind!

In case anyone is wondering, they are the size of the small plastic Easter eggs, and I wrapped six layers of wool around the eggs (alternating directions for each layer).

  1. oh, so adorable. I love them!

  2. Yikes. I have some catching up to do! The eggs turned out great, as did the little guys, including the penguin! I’ve only needle felted a couple of things… my fingers are still recovering! Would like to get into it more. On the list! Do you buy your roving dyed or do you die it yourself?
