Needle Felted Moomintroll Brooch

Today I would like to share with you my latest needle felted creation – The Moomin… I know it should be white but I had my reasons for making him green. First of all I did not have any white or even grey wool for that matter, second I made it for my friend and her favourite colour is green or at least that is what I think basing it on the green scarf she often wears ;)

  1. To make a moomin start shaping main parts, roll the wool into a shape and then stab it with the needle until it is all firm and springy.
  2. Then connect them by pricking with the needle around where they are joining, until secure.
  3. Finish off adding details and eyes, make holes with an awl and then glue them in for extra security.
  4. If you are making a brooch sew the pin onto the piece of felt fabric and then connect the whole thing to the moomin sewing it on.
