Instructions for a small hand felted needle picture
The Heather on Cannock Chase, Staffordshire
The materials I used for making the picture
The sky partly felted with the needles
Hand felted with the needle tool
Felting the fields
I've added the heather and adjusted the background.
The completed picture.
I tried adding machine embroidery but it did not work out.
How I made the picture.
I used a piece of felt 7” x 7”
I separated the roving wool for the sky, fields and heather.
In the background I felted green for the fields and added small pieces of white to give it a misty effect.
In the foreground I used lilac wool.
I did try to do some freestyle machine embroidery on the picture but it left holes and the felt pushed against the needle.
The picture took me around two and a half-hours to make.
