100 Days Project

sally: 100 Needlefelted items

As a teacher of 4-5 year olds, I tell lots of stories. I am going to needlefelt an item a day, for 100 days, that I can use as props for telling stories and rhymes, or for the children to be able to use to retell stories and rhymes.

Day 17:

mushroom and toadstool

One of the great things about this project is that I am developing skills, techniques and confidence in my needlefelting. These toadstools are a project that I had made a year ago, but the toadstools were floppy and wouldn't stand up, and I wasn't sure what to do about it. Today I worked on it a bit more, added pipecleaners and felted over them, and made it a lot more firmer.... and now they stand up by themselves! (plus I think they look terrific with the gnomes!)
