Looks like Patricia Bierer, of Muskego, WI, is getting ready for the winter months with her holiday Santa and beautifully detailed vest.  We love seeing your projects, Patricia. You always have something new and fun to work on. Fantastic!

“After I received your cd of how to make a santa it was very helpful and away I went . . . the colors I used were garnet, hemlock, white, and flesh. . .  he is 12in high, now I just have to make another one!
This vest was needle felted by hand and  a needle felting machine. I used pieces of hand felted  roving and put the design on by hand and machine.  I used  Merino  wool.  It goes good  with the  hat [I made] and now I have to make a skirt.  House work can wait, felting is first!”

  1. Patricia, very charming work! I am interested in a needlefelting machine. What kind do you have? I don’t know whether to invest in a dedicated machine, or look for a used machine and buy a conversion kit.

  2. If I did the attatchment, I was going to buy a used machine, and remove the bobbin assembly, totally dedicate the used machine for felting. My main concern was that the adaptation kits do not have many needles.

    So which is better, the 7 needle or the 12? I am assuming that with the 12 you can change the number of needles that you are using at a time?

    Did you make the camel fabric for the vest too?
