This little bug wins the Inspired Ideas award of the week! We all flipped when
Irene shared this felted VW Bug in our facebook group, LIVING FELT FRIENDS.
much to our delight she patiently answered the stream of questions that ensued.
“So… today I woke up with this crazy idea… It is a 1960 poppy color Beetle,
I used prefelt cut into all major parts. I left space between them at the layout stage.
I used a sander for a long time too to get all the parts hold on to the background.
most black lines are simply the background which is wool with viscose fiber,
which makes it darker and they don’t disappear as quickly as wool alone.
I admit that I needle felted a few lines in the body of the car after wet felting…”
