I have been working on finishing the new punched piece and the patterns, but needed a break today, so I played around with my needle punch. I broke one needle, so using two for now, and waiting on new supplies I ordered today. I was going to go to jo anns, but remembered I had amazon money, so it was nice being able to buy stuff without paying;)
I made a purse yesterday, or a pouch, something simple and will hold items. I used yarns and appliqued some wool too.
It was fun and easy to do. The flash grabs the colors and makes things stand out, but the yarns are actually punched into the background.
Today I tried a new idea, a pumpkin, mostly filled in with yarns. The orange is an old yarn I got and over dyed, so it is rougher and didn't felt as well, but give a nice effect. The leaves are done with a hairy wool, so it felted right into the backing. Today I got a book from the library, to make small animals. Not sure if I can do that, but it would be fun and I would use the real roving for them. Both eyes were the same, when I started, lol.
