Needle Felted Crow...


Sugarplum danced in my head!


I made her hat and collar out of wool felt...
Then tacked her tail feather to the vintage letter!


S is for SugarPLUM...
Our daughter has wanted me to paint our front door
or fireplace deep plum~ She is amazing at selecting colors...
I was able to get my plum fix from this felt stitching!
No purple for me~


Look at these fun colors!!!
"They're so FLUFFY!!!" (love that movie....)

Wool felt sews so neatly...
It also "feathers" nicely...
Sugarplum's collar has a soft edge~ just a few easy steps!


Snip the edge...


Stretch it out a little... pull, push... but not too hard~


Little by little pull the the loose snips off...


TaDa! Feathered edge... 


Some of these needle felts will be in my Etsy store soon~
For now they're my studio friends...

Hope you have a wonderful evening!

LOL! Funny how some words can be key in a conversation. You mentioned 'plum' . . . no 'purple'. My first car was a Gremlin (for those of you who are too young, feel free to look it up on the internet). The color? Why plum of course . . . NOT purple! LOL! My daughter loves your needle felting!

Smiles and Blessings!
