*Caption: in French “feutrés” means both felted and muffled… A pas feutrés means to approach without a sound…
After the workshop with Gretel Parker, I decided to try needlefelting at home, with French supplies sourced in the gorgeous Parisian shop Pain d’Epices (“Gingerbread”).
I made a 3D sculpture from wool instead of merino: wool felts more quickly but has a dry, fuzzy aspect – which I guess becomes a bit tricky when it comes to small details. I suppose one has to decide depending of one’s project.
The bear’s name is Gaspard simply because Mr Republic and I love giving human names to animals. It is obviously a Gaspard.
And you even get a bonus picture of the work-in-progress I had posted on FB:
I think I am okay with needle-felting, not so sure about igloo-making!
Have a lovely Sunday!
