Needle Felting - Mother Earth

Inspired by many of the fabulous blogs and Etsy designers out there I thought it was about time to try my hand at 3D needle felting. Rebekah's new favorite book, The Story of the Root Children by Sibylle von Olfers, inspired the creation of our Mother Earth. I think she will be a splendid addition to our Spring Nature Table when the time arrives.

I'm still trying to decide what she should be holding in her hands. A basket of flowers is my first thought, but the idea of felting little flowers is a little daunting. What do you think Mother Earth should be holding?

Many thanks to the great tutorial I found here.

  3. Oh - what a lovely Mother Earth. The Root Children is our favourite bed time read right now - we have read it every night this week. maybe she could be holding a ball of wool, as in the story?

  4. That is darling. Felting is on our list of things to do to. You did an excellent job.

    How about a little earth or a little apple?
