It's Easter!

I made these little chickens in eggs for gifts this year with a small chocolate egg hidden inside with the chicken. Looked sweet tied up with a bow.
Both the chicken and the egg have been wet felted. The egg has been built up using an egg shaped resist which was later removed...............Had lots of fun...!

Beautiful chicks and eggs! As all your work is beautiful.

Enjoy seeing your stuff so much. Can't wait to see the photo's of the exhibit at the library.

What is felting?

"FELT" The Essential Macquarie Dictionary meaning:

"A non woven fabric of wool, fur or hair matted together by pressure"

Fibres can be manipulated with the use of soap, water, friction and heat variations ..........or the use of barbed needles to create many interesting, practical and wearable things.
