Coastal Crafters Workshop

Today was the 2nd ever Coastal Crafters Workshop, held here in the Mookah studio.  It is a small group of like minded friends meeting up to chat, eat, laugh and maybe do a craft project or two, every couple of months.  Today's project was set by Carol, who decided she wanted to have a go at needle felting.

To be honest I had no idea what she was talking about until she arrived with all the goodies in individual bags for each of us and the pretty pictures of felt mushrooms. Then I was intrigued.


All I can say is if you are a little tense, a little stressed or have a build up of anger, then needle felting is for you!  You get to poke this long barbed needle really fast in and out of the felt and while you're doing it, why not use it as a release of your emotions?


Are these the cutest little mushrooms you've ever seen?  We did go on to also make some little brooches before embarking on a special little something to go on a t-shirt for Mr Itchy.

Do you think he'll like it?  Do you think he'll wear it? 

Oh yeah, there was a little screen printing thrown in there too, just to mix things up a bit.  Another fun and successful workshop.


  1. Excellent fun, and I love Mr & Mrs Itchy - they are the best!

  2. A bit of needle poking stress relief sounds like just the ticket! Oh, and is that a new scarf I spy there? Looking lovely!

  3. Hey, I have my own needle felting thingo, I should have popped down for some fun!
