Now this set is part of a number of postcards along the same theme but for different reasons I need to make this month. I did a trial run on my own piece of fabric and loved these needle felted trees that I just had to continue. The one thing I found out is the proper tools of the trade are important!!! See I had bought the single needle felting kits that have compressed styro for the base. Another quilter heard this and was aghast and immediately leant me her brush base to try out. WELLLLLL it's like night and day I can tell you and if I'm going to continue with this technique I definitely have to get myself this base and possibly a multi needle holder too!
These first ones are gift cards for friends. I blended two shades of green for the trees, brown for trunks and then used a very fluffy batting for the snow and it worked just as well as the wool roving. Then I added the sequin star and various beads to represent lights. I LOVE them!!!
