I have a fiber show called the "Spring Fling" coming up... it will benefit a Kansas City area camp for autistic children. So I have been wet and dry ( needle) felting Easter eggs... and a basket or two.
The eggs in the basket are needle felted over a Styrofoam egg. The basket itself was knit in the round with wool yarn and then wet felted and dried in the dryer with a rubber ball. The teal stripe was needle felted on at the end. The open eggs were wet felted over a plastic egg, dried and then cut open. Once the egg was removed, I blanket stitched the opening.
It has been fun! I think I will put the basket and 6 eggs on etsy.
