Have you ever found yourself stuck while doing some crafts because you didn't have a certain tool or material? Once I did use a spirit level to measure the length of knitting project I was doing at the time. I couldn't find a proper measuring tape and I remember that the spirit level had a ruler side.
It all would have been ok, only for some unexpected guests turned up on my doorway as I was using the spirit level in this unusual manner. My friend being a DIY expert couldn't help but smile as he asked: "are you making sure the knitting is leveled?" I hope you found that funny. If you don't... well, maybe you had to be there. What is the weirdest thing you have used while crafting ?
I can't believe I did that workshop back in November last year!!!! I really need to keep up with posting things.... Needle felting basically consists in "felting" with a needle. Or in other words, turning "loose" wool into felt by pricking it with a needle. And believe me, as therapeutic as it can be - it somehow feels like you are practising vodoo on a doll - you might want to watch your fingers. Like paper cuts, the pricks on human flesh might not be life-treatening but they surely are painful. Anyway, I'm saving the results of the workshop itself for again (when I posted, you'll understand why). Instead here are the results of the left over material from the Needle Felting Workshop that AZ Atelier organised and Maru from Fieltrunguis delivered. Hope you enjoy it!
