Recently I purchased a wool batt such as a quilter would use and turned it into about 100 needle felted pumpkins. This was before the Cider & Cinnamon Art and Craft Fair. I sold many of these at the Fair and have only about 10 left. Each pumpkin in covered in a variety of orange wool then the sculpting begins by adding lines for shaping and curly locks for dimension and texture. I make the leaves out of a variety of green wool. I have discovered that dry felting works well with the leaves as they are thinner and see-through, just like leaves that are dying. My only regret -- not buying another wool batt so I could make more. Well, there is always next year.
In my next post I'll tell you about my recent travels to Wisconsin and my new shop location!
