A couple years ago...
I saw a guest on Martha Stewart make needle felted chicks.
They were too cute, and I had to try!
(click photos for a larger view)
So.. you start with loose dyed wool...
a long, sharp barbed needle,
and you kinda shape it and push the needle into it,
until it holds the shape..
These are really small..
the bases are made from a pop bottle caps,
covered in organza ribbon.
It was a really fun project.. so fun that...
My husband wanted to try,
He is very creative, and has a great eye for detail!
So Mrs. Chick was given a flower for a bonnet...
and Mr. Chick recieved a felt top hat.
Together they are quite the stylish pair..
decked out in their Easter Best :-)
I see these beautiful craft rooms in magazines...
and sometimes wish I had a girly haven to create in.
But... I share a hobby / craft room with my sweetie,
he has his crafts, and I have mine..
but.. we have a really great time creating together.
These chicks are a little silly..
but... I remember the time making them,
and it is a great memory!
Tonight I am joining Cindy at My Romantic Home
