Needle Felted Embroidery

Picture of Needle Felted Embroidery
This piece is a combination of needle felting and embroidery.  I found this image online which I really loved and wanted to turn it into something real - a picture or a pillow, or something like that.  It seemed like the perfect opportunity to experiment with an idea I had to felt a flat image onto fabric, and embellish it with embroidery.

You'll want to gather up a variety of wool roving, a thick piece of foam, and a felting needle.  You'll also want embroidery floss, an embroidery hoop, and needles for the embellishment.

There are a lot of ways to transfer your image onto your canvas (in this case, my canvas is some fabric from a discarded bed sheet!).  Since my fabric was sheer enough to see through, I placed the image underneath and used a water-soluble marker to trace the image onto the fabric.  The marker will disappear when sprayed with water!

This also works quite well with most yarns, and other fiberous materials (Felt, obviously!). I used yarn to felt a spider on to a plain sweatshirt for my mother once, though I imagine wool roving is much better for bigger projects!

This is adorable! Thanks for sharing this! I bought some supplies to try this last year. Just haven't tried it yet! You might have pushed me a little to give it a go.

My daughter made the same saying,only different, " Roar is Monster for I love you." on a T-shirt for my grandson. It worked really well. Really cute and well done.
