Crafting with Felt Balls - Part 2 of 2

Felt necklace 2

Part 1 of the crafting with felt balls can be found here.

I have a storage basket full of jewellery making beads and findings that I bought when I had a jewellery making faze, we all have those right? And it didn't last terribly long, again that happens to all of us, yes?

This little necklace was made using embroidery floss, small beads, felt balls and a magnetic clip. It's a delicate piece and probably not meant for every day wear.

Again I won't go into a detailed step by step as there are so many on the www for your reference.

Top tip:
If you're new to 'knotting' take some time to do a little research before you start. I have a few pins on my JEWELLERY MAKING Pinterest board that are worth looking at.

The felt balls came from Wool Felt Company. They really do have a great selection of colours, and the variety pack is worth buying if you're just starting out, (that's what I did).

Pinterest is full of fabulous felt ball crafting ideas and I'm so looking forward to more making during the year.

I have only recently discovered creating with wool roving and felt. And I am thoroughly enjoying it.

In December I made a little needle felted Santa to go in a mini wreath and after Christmas I sat down to make some gifts (yes I'm good at making Christmas gifts after Christmas!!) with felt balls. I wanted to make the balls myself but having found Wool Felt Company I discovered that it was cheaper and easier to buy them!

For these hanging mobiles I used:
Felt balls (20mm)
Embroidery thread
Beads
Driftwood (bought off eBay)
A drill (thank you dear husband for drilling the holes for me)
A thin, sharp, long needle

I won't reinvent the wheel by doing a step by step as there are so many wonderful tutorials and videos on the internet already. However any questions, please shout and I will help!

I didn't want to bundle too much on one post so look out for a part 2 project next month.

Happy day.
