Saturday night craft

This week’s project for Petite Fille’s Village, is a mushroom house. No pattern, so I can’t blame anyone for bad instructions! I sent a photo to Daughter2 and she said something along the line “Wow, you are fantastic at needle felting” and I replied something along the line “Obviously shows that the craft is for the most craft challenged” . That aside, I am really enjoying the elements of creativity, the relaxation of it all, and the fact that I am crafting something for my grand daughter.

Felted Mushroom HOUSE JAN 2014

I need to craft a base so that it doesn’t have to lean against something. I thought of maybe making something like a grassy knoll by using lavender inside a small bag and needle felting over, so that it is weighted, flexible and the lavender may help to keep insects out during storage, as it will really be a couple of years before everything is completed and the set is given to Petite Fille to play with. It would go straight to her mouth right now!

  1. Maybe Cedar Sawdust would be a better repellent? Not sure. But you really are good at this craft. I love the house, it is very adorable.


  2. You really are very good at needle felting! I had wondered if you planned to give it to Petite Fille soon, because of that going to the mouth thing. Waiting seems the wiser course.

  3. do you know how to felting over wire? now that i have needles & a felting pad, my mind is felting away (sadly, my hands are not) and I’m trying to figure out how people make the little wire-reinforced felted animals (without having to take one of mine apart to find out)
