Felt Frenzy

Natalie Loves The Yarn
On Friday, in celebration of Natalie's birthday, she invited a few of us to the Urban Craft Center in West L.A. for a needle-felting party. Of course, I've felted handbags, knitted and crocheted food and other items before, but I'd never done any needle-felting.
The Urban Craft Center offers classes in many crafts. It's a marvelous place, excellent teachers and incredible supplies. The classes are reasonable....I'll definitely go back.
We started out by learning how to make a cupcake, then we graduated into various other projects. Thank you, Natalie for giving us this wonderful learning opportunity!

Now that sounds like my kind of party! And I like the little felted animals - those are cute.

I've never tried needle felting - it always seems like an awfully sadistic thing to do to some perfectly innocent fiber! ;)

Ellen made the fried egg and the hostess cupcake. I made the chicky and the purple cupcake. Natalie made the skunk with the wild mohawk and her mom, Cher, made the bunny. Lori made the painterly seal, Carla the penguin and Darcy the iPod holder. It was a BLAST!!! Thanks, Ellen, for all the great pics.

The excitement of fresh yarn really brings out the best face in a person! LOL! Thank you for everything. The cake was delicious and hilarious. I was glad people could take a little piece of me home for later. What a creative & fun bunch! I had the best night.
