It has been awhile since I picked up my felting needles. The downside about not needle felting for a period of time, I find I can loose some of my touch and become more vulnerable to the pricks(ouch!) from sharp needles and any felting fan will tell you , it is not so pleasant when there are 3-4 of them at a time (double ouch!)
So while I was back in KL in March for a friend’s wedding…well actually whenever I am in KL, I have a “must” routine within my first few days of settling back in. I must have my compulsory dose of local food,I must check out what is the latest in Asian cinema at the DVD store and I must go to Kinokuniya bookshop in KLCC where I pore over their incredible range craft and DIY books.
Each time I return to Kinokuniya in KL, it is without fail I will always find at least one or even more craft book which I don’t seem to come across in any of the local (ever decreasing) bookshops in Melbourne:(.
This time I found 2 books, one which is Feltique by Nikola Davidson and Brookelynn Morris
I highly recommend if you are looking for more ideas, techniques, projecs for felting and needle felting. I already have 10 books on felting and consider this another great addition to my ever growing collection.
Their project ideas are fun to make, so fun that I made one last week, needing a break from my not so fun job-hunt activity. Its the Cupcake Chomper…
Yup,that is my little purple Cupcake Chomper which I made and photographed with the teeny tiny cupcakes which I bought for tea(watching my weight!). It is fun to make and took me about 2 hours to complete…the tiny teeth and cupcake in the mouth was a bit of a challenge but worth the effort.
Happy felting…talk soon. xo NOtaHati
