Needlefelting Doll Shoes




Okay, maybe I am bit of a compulsive person. Just a wee bit. I started needle felting in 2007. It's just the thing for me. Stab stab stab. If you have good fine motor skills, good eye-sight, and lots of patience you should try it. If not you may end up with some self inflicted injuries. But who am I to talk? I occasionally step on needles.







I don't think anybody has taken needle felting quite to the level that I have. I like to decorate my doll shoes to match the dresses for my dolls. I will take an element, a small detail, from the dress and felt it onto the shoe. The tiny doll shoes are my canvas.




It's quite tedious work. But aren't the results quite amazing? You can find lots of examples of my shoes on my flickr photostream

I started needlefelting this past Christmas, and I love it (stab stab stab ouch!)...it's definitely slightly addictive.

Needlefelting gave me a repetitive strain injury in 2008. I gave it up! Too addictive, but I love the results.

I can't do it for long periods of time. I make a couple of items a month. Then I take a break from it and sew. I find it is very hard on the eyes...
Thanks for all the lovely comments on this post!

The dolls shoes are so cute. I love the red flowers in them. You should make real shoes for babies. You'd be great at the design part.
