A pixie and a Christmas fairy

Now I understand why everyone loves needle felting!! I gave it a go for the first time yesterday and I just love the results (obviously I need to work on my ability to do faces though…) And the process is very therapeutic too.

Here is my first attempt – a pixie 🙂

I think he is adorable and Master D can’t stop playing with him! He is sitting in front of one of my unfinished ‘pixie’ door creations because Master D said this is where he lives.

And for my second attempt I made a Christmas fairy following this tutorial.

I think she will look lovely on our Christmas tree. Before she takes her place there I might add some embellishments though.

So now I have another craft ‘addiction’ 🙂

Warm wishes, Kelly

    You did a wonderful job, Kelly! Your faces look better than mine, so you don’t need too much practice. I’m glad you tried it. Hope you are having a great weekend!! Warmly, Carrie

    This is exactly why I’m afraid to try needle felting… I love everything made by it so much, and I don’t need another craft addiction! You did a beautiful job!

    Blessings, Debbie

    They look so good 🙂 I have made felt balls but I’ve never tried needle felting… Not that I need another hobby, but I might have to give it a go!

    Those are adorable! I’ve been scared to jump into that craft. I just may have to after seeing your success!

    So cute! I’ve made some felted beads but that’s about it. I’d love to try some little people, though. Thanks for the inspiration! I like the pixie door, too.
