My Chloe has been needle-felting since she was 6. She really loves it and is really good at it. I am always looking for ways to inspire her, but I rarely see books on the subject that we both really love. So we were thrilled with Sweet Needle Felts by Jenny Docherty. It is full of really fun ideas that are not to too involved. I thought her directions were easy to understand, Chloe even learn a few new techniques. 

This is Sweetpea (Chloe's nickname) that Chloe made for me. Isn't she the sweetest. I just love her Chloe, well done xoxoxox

You must be SO proud right now! Chloe is so talented, and I just love Sweet Pea. She looks like she is just waiting to get out in the big wide world.

You tell Chloe what a beautiful bunny or is it a kitty that is!! Love the dress...she is inspiring me to want to learn...


Sweetpea is so cute! Chole is very talented! Needle felting has become popular in Australia recently. The craft shops have some lovely stock nowdays. Enjoyed your little walk at Fish Creek. What a lovely time of year!

Both sweet peas are too cute : ) Your girls each have their own distinct vision for their craft projects, don't they? I loved Auberne's x-box pillows : )


These little creatures are so adorable! I bet my daughters would love them!

Dear Clarice,

I love, love Sweetpea, she is so sweet and adorable!!! Her face is so cute and I love her dress. Chloe did an amazing job! She needle-felts beautifully! Oh, how I would love for her to show Justin and I how to needle-felt. I am glad you found that charming book. I look forward to seeing what else Chloe creates! By the way Sweetpea is a perfect nickname for Chloe!

Sweetpea is very 'sweet'! I have never tried needle felting but would like to sometime. I like the flowers some gals have needle felted to felted bags.
