Yes, you can definitely feel it, smell it, hear it and in my kitchen there is a sign . . . . .
I'm so pleased with the new "reversed "barbs" needles I can't stop making the new needle felted Barn owls .
You can see the difference : both wings are needle felted with the "ordinary" needles and after that I used the Reverse needle on the wing on the left side. See how the colours blend in ?
I particularly love the part around his head and on the chest. All fluffy and soft looking :-)
Here is Mom laying on her nest and Pa and the "real " stuffed :-( owl are watching the progress.
She needs a beak and the little dots on her feathers.
I couldn't needle felt the dots, the fluffy effect would be gone so I used Norwegian sock wool ( it's a mixed colours wool) and I embroidered the wool on the grey parts.
Here they are : Mom and Dad :-)
The only thing I have to do is attach her to the nest .
Doesn't she look happy and comfy ?
