“Needle Felting A Teddy Bear & A Gnome”
Nancy Shinder’s grandchildren had come to my home last year and wanted to come back to the home of the “nice lady”.
We arranged for them to come to my home on Saturday, October 15, 2016.
Juliana is the mom and her two sons are Eli age 7 wearing a green shirt and Ari age 9 wearing a black shirt.
I laid out felting foam mats and gave them each their own set of felting needles, pictures of my needle felted bears for ideas and instructions on how to needle felt.
They rolled and poked and needle felted the bodies of their teddy bears embellishing them as they worked. They got most of the body done before lunch.
After lunch they finished their bears and saw that their mother was designing and needle felting a gnome, so they started to make their own gnomes.
Juliana even needle felted a wonderful angel.
They were all so wonderful that I invited them to come back to my home for another class when they visited their grandparents again.
