Needle Felted Bible Characters

My facebook friends have already seen these pictures.  But I really wanted to post them to my farm blog as well.
I made these Bible characters to use for the three days I taught the pre-school kids at our church's Vacation Bible School.  They are made from doll pins (clothes pins), Shetland wool for the hair and certain bits of clothing.  I also used fabric scraps and an old white t-shirt.  :)

The Story of Adam & Eve

Moses & The People of Israel Wandering in the Desert

The Crucifixion & Resurrection of Jesus
(Ministry, Crucifixion, Tomb, Resurrection)

I don't know when I'll find the time...but I definitely want to make more of these.  It is fun to design different charachters.... and I like having props when I teach Sunday School and VBS.

It Worked!

We took Nhu's homemade fly mask off and discovered good healing happening.  No more open wounds!  She still has some puffiness around her one eye.  And there is a large area of bare skin on the bridge of her nose.  But all in all, very good results! 

We applied aloe healing cream to her nose and created a new fly mask for her out of the other sleeve.  This time I cut away fabric from both eyes so she has full vision now.  She doesn't seem to mind the mask a bit.   I'm very happy with my little experiment.  :)
