I had to scurry around for this month’s scrap utilising day but, if my contribution is unexciting, at least it’s seasonal.
I had a kit to make a 2D needle felted picture and there was some roving and yarny bits left over. When I thought about making a gnome or two, some of the curly pieces came to mind.
I needle felted a ball for the head/body, a little nose and a pointy bit for the hat then added the curls for a very unkempt beard – but that’s gnomes for you.
It took quite a long time so I had a go at doing the same thing with some scrap double knitting yarn but it took just as long and his hat isn’t as neat,
So, a new addition to the bauble box and some curly bits used up – I told you it wasn’t that exciting.
However, it is Christmassy and I wish you all a good one in case I don’t get chance to post again before the new year.
