Inspired by this week’s felt project round-up, I gave needle felt jewelry a go. I played with this briefly to add dots to this felt mushroom a couple of years back, so am a novice to this technique. It is very easy to pick up, and pretty quick for small jewelry projects like this.
As with most things I create lately, I used my sizzix to cut shapes for these pieces. For example, for the ring, I die cut 2 small orange circles from a sheet of wool felt and needle punched them together to form the disk shape. I hand cut a white felt triange and punched it to the top of the disk. The blue outline is needle punched wool yarn. I used a darning needle to create a hole in the disk and thread my wire through it to make a wire wrap ring.
For the pendant, I used 2 larger die cut circles for the base, then needle felted the inner and outer circle shapes and triangle on top of that. The finished piece is glued to a button using E6000.
I will definitely be doing more of this. I wish there was a way I could needle felt without poking my fingers, but what is a little blood for the sake of crafting?
