Felted Junco - Female

This evening I created a little brown mate for the male junco from yesterday.   It may not be clear in the photo, but the brown lines are actually thin wisps of moorit yarn. 

I used a completely different photograph to guide me...it had more detail...which I think I tried too hard to represent.  I think the tail was more accurate on the male.  
Oh, well. I'm having so much fun.  :)

I have got to learn how to needle felt. I think you did a great job on both birds.

Thank you, Kelly. Needle felting is super easy. I've never had much ability with 3 dimensional art (like working with clay or even patterns for clothing). But this felting is very forgiving, especially on a round solid object like a songbird. (or sheep!) And the needles cost just a few dollars. So it is affordable to get in to.

I hope you give it a try!

I agree, needlefelting is a very affordable past time, so is wet felting. And lots of fun too. I love your pair of juncos Sabrina! Keep up the good work! A lot of times for me the fiber takes on a life of it's own and I'll set out to make one thing but it beomces something else during the course of the needling. Enjoy!

Your felted birds are LOVELY Sabrina! Very impressive for a someone new to felting.

You've inspired me to get out my felting needles and do some 'playing around'...

Thank you so much Heather! May I add your blog to my list? When I have a moment I would like to start a "fiber art" blog-list in my sidebar.

All the best!
