Let's dance felted brooch (awfully big art adventure "felt")



I went to a textile/felting group today and my friends Linda & Pat also came along so it was even more fun. Pat was selling some arty girlz charms so I made this brooch using a needle-felted background (using her embellisher!), charms and thread. I have put it on my denim jacket and it looks oool! I also made some felted beads and made them into a bracelet.

I've always wondered about felting, I have NO idea what it's all about but these are gorgeous, especially love the broach.

Oooo....these are divine! I am especially drawn to the wee gal that you're wearing on your denim jacket. I'll bet she receives lots of stares and comments. Wonderful work my friend. Love what you said about childhood on my blog, by the way!
